James Halliday Wine Companion 96 points (Campbell Mattinson) "It's not a 'look at me' wine, but it's so beautifully well fruited, balanced and flavoured. This is a seriously good option for the cellar. The tannin is ripped with earth and coffee notes, the fruit is black-cherried and bountiful, it's svelte of texture and sustained through the finish. It's both faultless and characterful and, all things considered, is extremely well priced."

First planted by Maurice O’Shea in 1946, the Rosehill vineyard features a north easterly aspect and a unique volcanic soil structure atypical for the Hunter Valley. These ancient soils contribute to the distinctive character of Rosehill shiraz, delivering a sophisticated wine of complexity, elegance and grace. The highest point on the valley floor, at 100 metres above sea level, the Rosehill vineyard is one of only a handful of highly prized vineyard sites in the region planted on a unique and ancient volcanic soil structure. Thirty hectares of old shiraz vineyards are planted on the contours of the land, rising on a northerly slope. Intense red forest fruits, plum, subtle spice and the iconic Rosehill florals. Plummy and perfectly medium-bodied. Ripe red fruits dominate the fore, but a tight tannin structure brings balance with subtle spice. #museum
