Robert Oatley Vineyards have over 40 years of experience with growing and producing brilliant Australian wine. This wine is deep in purple hues and has fantastic bouquet of floral scents that intermix and are shown with rich fruit flavours upon the palate. Would be beautifully paired with brisket, roast vegetables and rich cheeses.
2014 Vintage: 93 Points - The Wine Companion "Very good colour, swathe of dark red fruit, bay leaves and woodsy spice matched perfectly to its more medium weighted palate. Next, ripe tannins, some radicchio bitterness on the finish but a seriously good wine for the price."
From The Winery
The Robert Oatley Signature Series draws on a remarkable portfolio of vineyards nurtured by the winemaking talent of Larry Cherubino showcasing Australia’s most successful wine styles and regions. Bob Oatley’s mantra is that all wines should be a “darned good drink”, and the high quality Signature Series delivers immediate appeal, with satisfying flavours over an elegant frame. Each wine embodies the grape varietal and region in which it was grown.
The central Victorian region of Heathcote is renowned for its compelling Shiraz wines – the variety as dominant in plantings as it is distinctive in style. James Halliday describes it as “mouthfilling and mouth-coating, densely coloured and richly flavoured, its texture akin to a great tapestry, helping to highlight its multi-faceted taste.”
Wine Making Notes A difficult growing season marred by a heatwave in the early months, cooling closer to harvest, resulting in smaller than usual berries of good concentration. Hand-picked and sorted across 12 separate batches from a number of blocks, fermented in a combination of open and closed vessels with three batches undergoing 20% whole bunch fermentation. Matured for 15 months in 20% new oak – a mix of hogsheads and large cuves. Will age well to at least 2025.
Tasting Notes A perfumed, floral Shiraz: supple fruited, finely textured, with soft ripe tannins and gentle French oak character.
