Robert Oatley Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

With gooseberry, cat pee, jalapeño, this is a typical southern hemisphere SB, fresh and bright in the mouth with citrus, pineapple(-), and faintly herbal notes, neither deep nor intense but balanced and fresh, in a softer style, easy to drink. 84pts

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

Grassy notes over cooked cabbage and rubberband nose leads to full, oily, herbal, grassy, citrus, and cat pee flavors.

already showing its age it seems...a little orange blossom aroma gives way to band-aid and rubbery smells - ends with tart lemon fruit. decent

interesting tart, salty tropical flavors. It's like drinking a margarita! i've never had an australian sauvignon blanc so I find this fascinating. I even get some basil and rosemary flavors. in a blind tasting I would peg this for a Sancerre.
