Rosemount Estate

I must admit I was not terribly excited about the prospect of visiting Rosemount Estate after visiting so many other great wineries and cellar doors in McLaren Vale and tasting many wonderful wines, so I was preparing myself to be disappointed.
But. Rosemount Estate was going to have none of that! Of course there are the wines that you see in every bottle shop across every state in the Diamond Range. (Mind you we tried a cracking Cabernet that for its price was a real winner)
You get the feeling that Rosemount is grappling with the success of these wines as with many people, myself included, we believe that Rosemount does not produce any wine of great quality rather bulk wine that is cheap, cheerful and easy drinking.
Our host was wonderful and cut to the chase choosing some highlights from an impressive list of wines so that we were still able to walk out in a sober state without it getting messy.
In 2012 and 2013 Rosemount was awarded the Bushing Kings award consecutively for their winemakers producing the top scoring Mclaren Vale wine in a wine show. In 2013 it was the 2012 District Release Cabernet Sauvignon that gave them the title and it is this wine that we are now tasting. At $20 a bottle this cracking wine represents outstanding value.
Rosemount Estate is! Producing wines for the bulk wine market but there is also the award winning quality driven wine side to Rosemount that many of us do not see. A visit to this cellar door is an real eye opener for anyone who thought they knew which category the Rosemount wines fell into.
