Rosemount Estate Diamond Label Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2012 Vintage) says
A generous uncomplicated and juicy chardonnay whose tangy presence of peach, apple and pear-like fruit is underpinned by suggestions of cashew and dusty vanilla oak. Round and creamy, with a pleasing length of vibrant primary fruit, it delivers weight and richness before finishing with a soft acidity.

There's little question that Rosemount has lost its way in the past few years. There have been some good wines under the label but compared to the excellent value-for-money wines that we've been used to, the winery's performance has been lacklustre. However, I'm pleased to say that I've been very impressed with the wine quality of the newly released Diamond Label wines, especially this Chardonnay and the 2005 Shiraz. Disappointingly, the price has crept a a little over the $15 on special or by the case. The 2006 Diamond Label Chardonnay has impressive varietal character - persistent white peach and nectarine flavours, restrained oak, delightful viscosity and a clean, fresh finish. It's pleasing bright and neatly balanced. A comeback worth watching.

An easy-drinking chardonnay that is clean and lively with crisp refreshing acidity.

Honest wine; plenty of peach and melon fruit, not too much oak. Dry finish.

This is one of Australia's most popular chardonnays. It was sourced from the premium regions of the Hunter, McLaren Vale, Strathbogie Ranges and the Yarra Valley, and supervised by Philip Shaw, one of the country's best winemakers. The 2001 Diamond Label Chardonnay is a medium-bodied white which shows heaps of sweet tropical fruit and peach flavours and a light whiff of cedary oak before a lingering passionfruit-dominated finish.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green, quite full. The bouquet is clean, with some slightly minerally/green notes, not expected given the vintage, but the palate has good mouthfeel with peach and citrus flavours. Clearly given only the briefest contact with oak, for it has many of the characters of unoaked Chardonnay.
