Rosemount Estate Diamond Label Sauvignon Blanc 2013

One of the two first bottles we bought just after coming to Australia. Rosemount Estate Diamond Label Sauvignon Blanc 2013 was very fresh, had a pale lemon colour with green reflections. The aroma was medium intense and very fresh. Lots of citrus fruits, some gooseberry and green bean with a hint of banana.

In the mouth it was dry with some residual sugar, it gave a sticky aftertaste and some heat in the throat from alcohol. Flavours were nice though, and fresh – gooseberry, lime with lemon peel at the finish. Diamond Label Sauvignon Blanc was a very simple wine and will be perfect to enjoy outside during summer; it tasted very fresh while chilled.

It was my first Australian wine and I have to admit I will not remember it as I would like to do so– it was nice and fresh but very simple. But at the time I didn’t know that I need to spend at least 20-30$ to drink wine from medium/higher quality level that will satisfy me.
