Rosemount Estate’s Balmoral Syrah has always been a varietal masterpiece – a credit to the great Shiraz vines of McLaren Vale. Sitting at the very top of the Rosemount Estate family tree, Balmoral has achieved both local and international success: winning both a Trophy and a Gold medal at the coveted Decanter World Wine Awards in 2011 and again in 2012 and receiving 90+ points in the notable US Wine Spectator across multiple Balmoral vintages.
While its origins have – and always will be – in McLaren Vale, the distinctive Balmoral style pays tribute to the Shiraz wines of the Rhone Valley and Mediterranean – hence the traditional French name ‘Syrah.’
Predominantly sourced from the McLaren Vale sub-region of Seaview, this wine is made from premium parcels from carefully selected vineyards (ranging from 50 to 100 years old) that produce tiny quantities of exceptional fruit. The result is a wine that delivers intense depth of flavour, superb length and fine acidity with a soft, velvety tannin structure.
