Overview

Overview

First released in 1994, Rosemount GSM is a modern take on an old-world blend. Rich and spicy fruit flavours from old bush vine Grenache, balanced by the opulent power of Syrah are underpinned by the firm structure of Mourvedre.

Another fantastic vintage has led to another great wine. Sweet dark fruits and aromatic spices dance around each other as they lift skywards.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

A fragrant delight! Sweet red cherries, rich dark blackberries, dark plums and violets are underscored by white chocolate notes and nutmeg.

Flavours and Palate

Sweet red cherries, raspberries and blackberries splash across the palate, before dark plums and milk chocolate start to reveal themselves. This luscious array of flavours is supported by supple velvet tannins that carry the wine towards a long and mouth-watering finish. Delicious!

Randall Cummins – Winemaker

Randall Cummins – Winemaker

Growing up on a wheat farm at Lock on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, Randall was not exposed to much of the wine industry, (although his family were enthusiastic consumers). With a keen interest in farming and science, Randall chose to complete a week’s work experience at the Waite Agricultural Research Institute. After realising that Agricultural Science was not for him, Randall began to spend lunch breaks reading books about wine in the library. Waite was home to the Australian Wine Research Institute, and was soon to become the home of the viticulture courses. From here the seeds of Randall’s future career were sown.
The course began, and from the moment the first wine was made, Randall was hooked. During this time, Randall worked in vineyards in McLaren Vale, doing a variety of jobs. Coincidently, many of the vineyards he worked on delivered fruit to Rosemount Estate. Randall was lucky enough to be employed by Southcorp as part of the graduate program in 2000 and completed vintages at Rouge Homme in Coonawarra and Penfolds in the Barossa Valley. From there, he moved to the Hunter Valley to start work for Rosemount Estate in 2002.
Randall feels lucky to be working with great people and great resources to make great wines that are richly flavoured, accessible and most importantly, fun! Randall believes this is one of Rosemount Estate’s greatest virtues: understanding that wine is about enjoyment.
