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 was 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 variety and region in which it was grown.

MARGARET RIVER CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2018

REGION NOTES:

MARGARET RIVER WESTERN AUSTRALIA Climatically, Australia’s most reliable wine region, not to mention one of its best known, Margaret River is the ideal home for the Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, producing distinctive wines of powerful structure and finesse.

WINEMAKING NOTES Grapes from the northern regions of Margaret River: Wilyabrup, Carbunup and Cowaramup, were harvested at ideal flavour and tannin ripeness, fermented then matured for twelve to fifteen months in French oak from a variety of coopers. An excellent growing season has delivered well-balanced wines that will develop gracefully in bottle. Enjoy now to 2029.

TASTING NOTE A full-flavoured yet finely structured Cabernet of great appeal: black berries, dried leaves and fine gravelly tannin, reflect an outstanding year.

TECHNICAL NOTES Alc/vol: 13.5% | pH: 3.69 | RS: 0.0 g/L TA: 5.75 g/L |

CLOSURE: Stelvin Lux+ FOUNDER’S NOTE With over forty years of winemaking experience I’ve learnt there are two important elements when it comes to creating great wine. Firstly, the best wines show a true sense of the land – that ideal combination of grape variety and region. Secondly, they taste even better when shared with friends. I hope you enjoy drinking these wines as much as we enjoyed making them.
