Robert Oatley Vineyards, Pocketwatch [Central Ranges NSW] 2017

The pocket watch label attracts the eye and piques the curiosity.
The backstory pays homage to Bob Oatley's great great grandfather, watchmaker James Oatley.
This muscular, well-crafted Shiraz has already garnered 1 Gold medal & 2 Trophies
It is vibrantly youthful, exuding power, quality and promise and reflects its regionality
The flavour profile evokes mocha, spice, ripe redberries both on the nose and palate
The mid palate carries overtones of  peppery green capsicum and fine grained French oak tannins.
A very refreshing, solid value enjoyable Shiraz now but which will evolve and reward cellaring.
Price: $17
