Robert Oatley Signature Margaret River Chardonnay 2016
A wonderful Chardonnay that has slight peach accents, derived from one of Australia's highest performing Chardonnay regions. It has hints of mandarin, citrus and is wonderfully balanced with hints of peaches and vanilla.
2015 Vintage: 95 Points, Special Value Wine - James Halliday, The Wine Companion "Plots its course quietly but expertly, the colour still undeveloped (a good thing), white peach and nectarine fruit setting the course for now or later, because there will be no fundamental change with bottle age, just a slow increase in weight from mid to full."
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.
Region Notes Climatically, Australia’s most reliable wine region, not to mention one of its best known, Margaret River has proven to be the ideal home for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, producing distinctive wines of powerful structure and finesse.
Wine Making Notes Premium parcels of grapes were specially selected from a range of sites across the Margaret River region, from Karridale in the south through to Wilyabrup in the north, to create a well balanced, medium weight style in the citrus mould. Matured for a short time in a variety of French oak barriques, twenty per cent new. We deliberately avoided the traditional secondary malolactic fermentation in order to retain the wine’s long fine acidity. Enjoy now to 2021.
Tasting Note A bright, mid-weight, white peach-accented, gently oaked wine grown on selected sites across Australia’s highest performing Chardonnay region.
