Robert Oatley Chardonnay 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Bright and piercing with an intense vanilla top note over lightly smoky caramelized pineapple and roasted apple tones with a touch of polleny flora hints. Round and rich in the mouth with a nice fresh feel, roasted pear and melon fruit, and nicely integrated sweetly spicy wood tones. The vanillin has a slightly toasty quality though the finish is fresh and bright with succulent mineral laced acidity. Good length as well. Well balanced silky and moderately rich. Nicely done. 86pts

The Robert Oatley Vineyards winery is the Mudgee region’s largest and most technologically advanced facility. Located on the family’s Montrose Vineyard, it has a 10,000 ton capacity, 9.5 million liters storage capacity, over 2,500 predominantly French oak hogshead barrels and the world’s most technologically advanced bottling line capable of filling and packaging more than 10,000 bottles per hour. Bob Oatley’s winemakers, lead by Chris Hancock and Senior Winemaker James Manners, craft modern, authentically Australian wines intentionally suited to the American palate – wines that people simply enjoy drinking. In 2006, the family purchased the historic Craigmoor property on the outskirts of the Mudgee township. The winery, now a tasting room and visitor center, was established in 1858 and the surrounding vineyards grow some of the finest grapes in the region. Read less

Bright, crisp apple aromas. Refreshing but still creamy, lightly sweet, good bottle of wine. Juicy and simple.

very nice. not too oaky. made with a lot of stainless steel in the Chablis tradition? Very solid QPR. Paired decently with roast chicken.

Peaches and quince on the nose with a hoppy/yeasty twinge of linolium (have a feeling that this will subside over time). A little CO2 gives it a spritz on the tongue and keeps the wine lively and fresh. Its simple, yet very drinkable with a short finish. Overall simple, but a crowd pleaser.

Very nice. Tastes of apples, pears, vanilla pudding and cantalope.

Vibrant and generous, delivering a lively mouthful of orange-accented apple, pear and floral aromas and flavors, nicely focused to breeze through the finish against mouthwatering acidity. Drink now through 2011.

Creamy and clean, this has simple citrus flavors of orange pith and lemon, along with some richness from lees. A well-balanced by-the-glass pour.
