Omrah by Plantagenet Wines have added two new wines to their range, the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and 2012 Rosé. Consumers are now looking for a lighter style of wine and the addition of a Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and a dry Rosé were perfect extensions to the Omrah range. The two wines capture the essence of Omrah with their contemporary style. The Omrah range has a fresh new look and is priced at $18.99 a bottle, the range showcases wine from the Great Southern region. Winemaker Cath Oates explains, “These wines really demonstrate what Omrah is all about – they are easy drinking wines, great with food and really speak of the type of wine being made in the Great Southern region. Coming into summer this is the style that a lot of wine consumers are looking for. The wines are crisp, fresh and bursting with flavor.”
Oates describes the Omrah Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, “The combination of the two varieties, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon allows for the winemaker to create a wine that has many facets, with Sauvignon Blanc giving perfume and tropical fruits, while the Semillon provides notes of citrus and provides the backbone of the wine with its fine acidity, a character best expressed in cooler regions.” She explains the flavours of the Omrah Great Southern Rose, “In the 2012 vintage we decided to use our Tempranillo grapes to produce our Rosé, specifically as it has a lovely fragrance, red fruit characters and a higher natural acidity to give the wine focus and freshness. It’s a dry style with vibrant red cherry aromas and notes of strawberry and raspberry. This juicy wine has mouth filling fruit flavours from the inclusion of the Shiraz, a savoury edge and a refreshingly tight finish.” Plantagenet Wines was founded in 1974 and was the first winery established in the Great Southern region. Omrah is one of three ranges and has just been updated this year. It represents pure wine drinking pleasure from the remote area of Southern Western Australia.
