Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Rosemount Estate Grenache Shiraz 2008 Wine Review
Gorgeous cherry liqueur runs through the heart of this well-priced wine with supple layers of dark plums and some spice. Judicious use of oak is woven well throughout. Perfect for movie night. 4.4/5

|D rated this wine as 4.5/5|
|Vintage Conditions: Fruit for this wine was sourced from selected vineyards in South Eastern Australia. The 2008 vintage was warm to hot, with a pro-longed heatwave in mid-March. However, grapes picked before the elevated temperatures were delivered to the winery in excellent condition, resulting in good varietal definition and balanced flavours.|
Maturation: Parcels of this wine were matured for 12 months on a combination of French and American oak.
Colour: Dark crimson with black cherry hues.
Nose: Strawberry and raspberry on the nose are typical of Grenache, with hints of darker plum fruit evident from Shiraz. Attractive pepper and spice are also evident with the faintest touch of oak.
Palate: A lovely combination of ripe raspberry and cherry combine with plum and blueberry notes, while spice and savoury characters are also evident. Oak is merely a
suggestion, while there is attractive texture and length, with soft, supple tannins.
