Robert Oatley Signature Series McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018


Classic, dark and charry regionally expressive Shiraz with the deft hand of Larry Cherubino steering this cleverly away from what could easily be a heavyweight style. Fruit from several districts including the eastern foothills and Blewitt Springs come together with ample flesh and deeply set blue and black berry flavours with a spark of spice and lift as the palate progresses, underlaid with soft, fine-sandy tannins. A good, solid yet very accessible Vales Shiraz as a smart price.
