ROBERT OATLEY SIGNATURE SERIES
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: McLAREN VALE SOUTH AUSTRALIA
We’ve been a fan of McLaren Vale Shiraz for many years now, yet have been keen
to progress the traditional style, to wines with brighter fruit, less obvious alcohol
and minimal reliance on oak. We’ve made a very accessible, well-loved style that’s
a proven hit with fans of the variety.
We selected premium parcels of Shiraz from around the Blewitt Springs –
Willunga area of southern McLaren Vale, where the hills run down to the ocean.
Fermented on skins in a combination of open and closed fermenters and matured
in French oak for 12-14 months. Enjoy now to 2023
Soft, fleshy-textured Shiraz displaying blueberries and spice, supple tannins and
