Rosemount Estate GSM 2012

I've made no secret in the past that I'm a bandit for a great GSM and this wine from Rosemount is nothing short of excellent.

I had the privilege of sitting down and tasting this wine with winemaker Matt Koch. His vision to produce wines which are more aromatic is clearly evidenced here.

A blend of 71/19/10 respectively, every component of the blend stands up and pulls its weight, and better still, the final result delivers. Hang on, it over delivers!

A hint of lipstick, raspberries and cherries on the nose followed by a handful of earthy goodness. These bright aromas followed by generous fruit with a lick of savoury herbs and spice. Superb depth finishing with a long and super soft finish.

An absolute delight to drink.
