Robert Oatley Pinot Grigio 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Wow this is intense and fruity on the nose with tropical aromas of pineapple and a hint of passion fruit floating over crisp green apple fruit. It smells a little candy like and has a bit of an acid tone to it. On entry it’s rich and packed with fruit, showing a hint of RS that balances out on the MP. It’s a fruity style and well done as such but the acidity is a bit assertive, and while it does help to give the mid-palate balance it gives the finish a bit of an odd note, turning it a bit metallic. 87pts

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

Interesting brownish-gold color...like caramel. Great pairing for shrimp alfredo. Smokey and deep. If I was drinking this with a blindfold I would have guessed it was a rose.

W&S 90pts - Winemaker Notes - Texture and structure are the hallmarks of our Pinot Grigio. We aim to capture the delicate pear, ginger and spice notes of the variety. We ferment some parcels with more solids to promote palate weight. The wine s natural partridge-eye hue has been retained in a wine that is crisp and fresh with the pure flavor of Pinot Grigio.

This is the first bottling from founder of the famous Rosemount Estates of Australia, Robert Oatley. This is a delicious, tasty, light and zippy wine, with juicy pear, tangerine and floral aromas and flavors that remain lively and appealing through the delicate finish. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.
