Robert Oatley Shiraz Mudgee 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage notes: The 2007 vintage was a very good one for those producers who managed their water resources properly through what was an exceptionally dry and warm summer growing season. Our vineyards produced some exceptional parcels of fruit which we harvested at varying ripeness levels to provide a multitude of blending options post fermentation. Winemaking notes: Harvested in the cool of the morning and fermented at cool to moderate temperatures in order to retain fruit spice and varietal impact. The fermenting must was gently and routinely pumped over with care. Careful selection of appropriate American and French oak barrels has allowed the fruit to remain to the front while providing structure, gentle tannin and spicy flavor from the wood.

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

Leathery and meaty on the nose with a sprinkling of soil tones and a hint of black pepper. On the palate this is surprisingly restrained with plenty of plummy fruit paired with subtle spice tones. It's got a touch of gritty tannin on the backend but is well balanced and offers good complexity and value. 87pts

2nd oatley wine tasted in a flight. lighter style, modest fruit, light pepper, reticent aromas, short finish. decent wine, but not worth the price tag. would be a good value at $9.99 or less.

Animal, earthy, musty aromas lead to a very fleshy wine with a great rich mouth feel. Fruity strawberry and banana notes shine through. Very nice.

Over-priced and under fruited. Appears that the winemaker couldn't decide between an Aussie Shiraz or a Rhone style wine and ended up making a facile example of Shiraz that displays astringency, medicinal qualities and almost no burst of fruit.

Deep ruby with a bright rim. candied cherry and blackberry on the nose, with a subtle smokiness adding interest, Deep dark fruit flavors are brightened by a zesty mineral note but betray no rough edges. Finishes with inviting sweetness and straightforward, slightly jammy dark berry character.

Bright and juicy, with a zingy feel to the blueberry, dark plum and distinctly mineral flavors. This finishes on a meaty note. Drink now through 2013.
