Mount Pleasant Rosehill Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Hunter Valley New South Wales
When Maurice O'Shea bought the Rosehill property with the support of the McWilliam family in 1946, he was looking for a similar site to that of Mt Pleasant. What he found was a parcel of rich, volcanic loam, idyllic soils which he planted to quality rootstock. Rosehill endures as an articulate and engaging expression of the Hunter Valley style. A beautifully structured Shiraz, showing excellent fruit to oak balance, fine tannins and a persistent, savoury finish, a timeless confirmation that O'Shea got his site selection pretty right.

Rosehill Shiraz can boast a succession of memorable vintages which have claimed multiple trophiess and gold. Grapes are picked off mature vines on the thirty hectare Rosehill Vineyard at one of Pokolbin's highest elevations, berries are gently destemmed without crushing, musts are held for two days cold soak prior to inoculation. Vinification begins at cooler temperatures in headed down fermenters, pumped over twice daily, skins are eventually submerged and temperatures allowed to gradually warm over the course of a fortnight. Upon completion, batches are pressed and transferred to a selection of seasoned and new, French and Hungarian oak barrels for twenty two months maturation.
Dense crimson with brick red hues. Rich in plummy fruit aromas, hints of leather and spice. Elegantly perfumed sweet lifted ripe raspberry notes over spicy dark chocolate oak, complimented by earthyness and nut. A savoury palate dominated by red berry fruit and mocha oak flavours. The tongue is enlivened by sweet cherries and black fruits which lead into complex, integrated plum and cedar characters.
