ROSEMOUNT’s Show Reserve is an interesting range of wines sitting between their Diamond and Flagship Labels, and giving consumers good-value fresh, bright and vibrant wines around the $20 a bottle mark.

They’ve a half dozen wines in the range from vintages in NSW, South Australia and Western Australia between 2004 and 2007, with one of the real crack-a-jacks their Show Reserve Western Australia Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2007.

This is an aromatic wine that delivers beyond expectation: there are plenty of lychee and passionfruit aromas, and the palate has generous notes of orange blossom, kaffir lime, red grapefruit and honeydew melon, reflecting the fruit from which the wine was sourced from across a variety of WA vineyards.

For those who like a touch of oak there could be some disappointment in this wine having no oak, but the intense fruit flavours certainly make up for any perceived shortcomings in this regard.

Excellent buying at a recommended $20.99; enjoy with asparagus quiche, green salad and a crusty baguette straight out of the oven.
