Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Rosemount work to the philosophy that a quality wine will always be appreciated. They have established a wide variety of vineyard sites around Australia, well positioned to take advantage of the most favourable soil types and mesoclimes. Diamond Label has remained a staple around bistrot tables across Australia for decades. Everyone can appreciate the consistency of quality, seamless palate structure and lively fruit. A stylish Cabernet Merlot, delightfully smooth, displaying all the easy drinking qualities which have made Diamond Label so popular.
A baronial winemaking estate with a long tradition of memorable vintages, Rosemount once claimed the Royal Melbourne Jimmy Watson Trophy for Cabernet Merlot. State of the art plant and equipment are essential, but a traditionalist approach to winemaking is at the heart of Diamond Label. From modern rotary fermenters to computer monitored temperature control, Rosemount have the finest facilities at their disposal. The technology however does not preclude old world winemaking techniques such as natural yeast inoculation and barrel fermentation. Following a cold soak maceration and vinification, components of Diamond Label are treated to maturation under a selection of fine oak.
