From Rosemount. An addition to this Australian company's Diamond varietal label which has secured significant UK listings Price: £7.49 Abv: 12.5% TARGET CONSUMER Sarah Tucker, 36, is a travel writer and broadcaster who lives in Chelmsford I drink a lot of champagne and sparkling wine so I was looking forward to trying this one. The label is the usual design for the Rosemount brand ­ diamond-shaped. However, I think the 'V' is pretentious, but perhaps that is the market it's going for, though you don't normally expect pretention from antipodeans. I agree with the blurb on the back of the bottle (which is as flowery and vague as a press release) that states it has "fresh, lively, fruit flavours with a crisp finish". Not as many bubbles and not as much fizz as you expect from a French champagne, and it initially comes across as a bit flat. But, that said, I loved the taste. I like Australian wine and this is good. It leaves a nice taste in the mouth. Rating out of 25 ­ 18 Sally Easton Master of Wine and wine buyer for Berry Brothers and Rudd The smart, yellow diamond label is instantly recognisable as coming from Rosemount and the back label illustrates the marketing creativity behind the name. The wine has a bright lemon yellow colour with a good persistence of mousse. The palate lacks complexity but shows good citrus, ripe melon, peach and mango fruit. These flavours are reflected on the palate giving a full-bodied easy style of wine which is appealing but lacks real structure or subtlety. It's price £7.49 is a serious one but Rosemount is strong premium brand and with appropriate marketing support, this product will do well. Success rating out of 25 ­ 23 Graham Shearsby Board creative director, graphics, at Design Bridge A confident stylish pack which builds on the Rosemount equities­ the diamond shaped label, diagonal typography and bold striking colours. The relevance of the abstract V sub branding is questionable. The back label tries hard to explain the deeper meaning, linking vigour, vitality and verve in justification. The physical and simple explanation of sparkling chardonnay is enough. Nevertheless it is a distinctive, smart looking pack following brand equities and building the portfolio without resorting to category clichés, especially in the somewhat conservative sparkling market place. Success rating out of 25 ­ 18 Steve Mayes Category controller at Landmark Rosemount has a tremendous reputation for producing high quality wines and this lives up to it. The liquid is crisp and fruity serving up large portions of melon! The presentation is classic Rosemount ­ simple but striking and oozing quality. It has an established high quality badge and is competitively priced at £7.49 in a growing market. Assuming margins stack up and there is some above and below the line support, it should do well and is worth listing. The latest outer packaging from Rosemount is stunning and other wine companies would do well to learn from this style of presentation.
