Tasting Note: Restrained and supple, lots of ripe dark plum, pepper and spice of Shiraz with the rose petal perfume lift and red cherry taste of Grenache. Lovely lightness and brightness to the back palate makes it terrific immediate drinking but will cellar nicely for 5-10 years.

Producer Details: Robert Oatley Vineyards is the latest venture of the Oatley family winemaking dynasty, which was founded by the late industry legend Bob Oatley. His legacy continues in his eldest son Sandy, who worked alongside his father for many years and manages the business today.Created in 2006, Robert Oatley Vineyards aims to embody the best that Australia can produce. Classic grape varieties are matched to the leading wine regions of Australia. Along with grapes from the family properties, some dating back to 1858, the Oatley family draw upon select growers of excellence across a diverse range of climatic regions.  A deep understanding of viticulture enables the team to identify the best vineyard sites in Australia. The talented winemaking team is led by Larry Cherubino – one of Australia’s most awarded winemakers. In 2013, Robert Oatley Vineyards gained James Halliday’s most prestigious FIVE RED STARS rating and has kept it every year since.

In The Vineyard: Old vines, some more the 80 years of age planted on a South East facing slope, protected from strong winds and facing the gentle moving sun. The vines (Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon) are planted in three distinct soil types at the top middle and bottom sections of the hillside, so we find different characteristics from each of the vineyard sections giving added complexity and interest to the wine we make.Farm in a sustainable manner with passion and care, also on the property we have a small wildlife refuge and large beautiful rose garden – the noble pasture of the grapevine. Harvested fully ripe, individual varietal parcels are processed separately.

In The Winery: Grapes are crushed to a combination of open and closed fermenters, with regular pump-overs and plunging during fermentation. Pressed to stainless steel tanks where the wine underwent its secondary malolactic fermentation then rolled down to a mixture of barrique, hogshead and large format French oak. Blending was completed on the bench, working with individual components to create the final blend..
