Omrah Rose 2012 & Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012
Two new releases from Omrah sourced from the Great Southern region and with their stylish new labels.
Omrah Rose 2012
A blend of Tempranillo and Shiraz is unusual but it works in this rose. A pale pink in the glass with a personality redolent in ripe strawberries and cherry fruit. Dry with a lightness of body to match the juicy crispness. The wine finishes with some savoury garden lavender, leaves and all that will keep you interested in the next mouthful. No one likes a dull rose after all! A good food wine with a fresh easy drinking for now philosophy.
Omrah Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012
Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are a blend that the West do well although being sourced from the cool Great Southern region does lift the profile of this wine out of the lush tropical fruit giving it more of a citrus zing.
Fragrantly perfumed pear and ripe grapefruit juice notes lighten the passionfruit and melon charisma in this wine. A fresh crisp style with a slight crunch in the acid but otherwise has soft and generous fruit. Good for summer drinking and enjoyable to drink even without food.
