Diamond Label Shiraz 2013 is a wine made in Australian Rosemount Estate and it is an example of basic/ entry level wines of the producer. In general all the wines from Diamond Label are fresh and fruity and I recommend to drink them while they are young.
Diamond Label Shiraz 2013 is quite watery wine with a nice purple colour. The aroma is delicate, fresh and fruity with black currant, plum, delicate liquorice and some black pepper notes.
In the mouth the wine is dry with some sharp acidity. Medium bodied with ripe, integrated tannins and quite long finish with bitter spices and black cherry flavours. Rosemount Estate Shiraz 2013 tastes of black cherry, black currant (beautiful black currant acidity) with a hint of damson. The finish is short, fruity and fresh. Although the wine is fruity and balanced, I could taste some unpleasant alcohol heat.
Diamond Label Shiraz 2013 is a simple, very fruity and easy to drink wine. Perfect as a everyday wine with food.
