This Chardonnay depicts the beautiful and soft characteristics of this petite plant, and anyone that has ever wandered through the Norwegian woods in the fall, or across the wide mountain plateaus, would have met this sweet-smelling, unpretentious little plant.
The refined taste, smell and colour set it apart from other cultivars. The symmetry in the fruit, minerality, oak and spice which embodies this wine, is the exact expression of the cool climate terroir where the grapes are grown.
LIMITED Reserve Jubileum 2016 has just been launched.
This new addition to Rosendal Wine has intensity which can be seen with the purple rim and black core displayed within your glass. The fragrance of blackberries, pink peppercorns, and rich granite are embodied by this classic blend. The palate is filled with the sweet and bold fruity flavour of brandied cherries which lead into the full-bodied ripe tannin structure of this Reserve. It is the ultimate collectors wine with only 1500 bottled of this vintage.
An old time favourite. The Reserve Blue Mountain 2016 has a deep dark hue. Whafts of ripe blackcurrant infused with roasted coffee beans and tobacco leaves line the nose. The palate is rich and densely fruited showing black plum and hints of dark chocolate. The wine has great structure and balance and concludes in a long tapered finish.
Only 4000 bottles produced of the Reserve Rhone Blend 2015.
Bright and inviting lashing crimson red, perfumed notes of spices and violets, makes for a perfect introduction with subtle whiffs of oak and white pepper contributing to the bouquet. On the palate juicy and decadent, mouthfuls of ripe red berry flavours that concludes with an unexpected twist towards the end, adding to the complexity of this wine. The firm tannins will ensure beautiful aging.
