Robert Oatley The Pennant McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018


This is a supreme example of McLaren Vale Shiraz from an outstanding season. The fruit comes off very low yielding vines between 40 and 80 years old. Despite the power and intensity of the largely spicy blue fruit, the wine was aged for just 12 months in French oak of which only 20% was new. It’s smooth and succulent with rich fruit intensity displaying a very subtle leathery influence.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
