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.
