Rosemount Estate Mountain Blue Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1998
TASTING NOTES The 1998 Mountain Blue shows a rich, deep plum colour and exhibits the outstanding quality that we regard as latent to the Mudgee wine region and our vineyards there. The attractive blackcurrant aroma of Cabernet Sauvignon complements the complex, mint and spice characters of Shiraz. On the palate, the intense fruit and firm tannin structure reaffirms the wine's excellent depth and sustained richness, reflecting the dry vintage conditions. Blackberry and spicy plum flavours dominate the palate, with the dry tannins following through to fabulous depth on the finish. The wine's full bodied richness make it the ideal match for game and red meat dishes. CELLARING This wine is a wine for long term maturation which will begin to show its best in about five years time, building to its full potential at approximately 10 to 15 years of age.
