Robert Oatley Finisterre Shiraz 2018


The Finisterre range has a single variety/single region/special site mantra that is immediately recognisable here in a black berry meets charry earth meets high percentage dark chocolate matrix which is so identifiable in the Vales. All these notes resonate through the nose and on to the palate with neatly balanced and integrated flavours subtly backed in by well-timed maturation in a range of new, one and two year old French oak barriques that essentially offer structural integrity more than weight or power. Fulfills its regional/varietal identity as a rich and complex expression of Shiraz while remaining sensitively layered and undyingly delicious.
