Regardless of personal preference you can't ignore chardonnay. It is everywhere and in so many different styles. If you claim to hate chardonnay I can assure you that something will take your fancy. How about this? Australia's answer to a high-end chardonnay.
Robert Oatley Wines, founded by the late Robert Oatley AO BEM in 2006, is a family owned winery led by his eldest son Sandy Oatley who with his father, brother and sister, planted the first Oatley vineyards in the late 1960’s. The trio of labels celebrates Bob Oatley with the Signature Series, exceptional vineyard sites with Finisterre, and the best of the best barrels under The Pennant. Focussing on wines from Margaret River and McLaren Vale, their home is in the stunning Margaret River, with a vineyard, cellar door and restaurant on Caves Road, in the heart of this great wine region. Consistently scoring over 90 points with the critics and having collected too many medals to detail, a number of the wines have been or are trophy winners but most importantly they’ve resonated with the wine-loving public around Australia and the world. As Bob Oatley said ‘they must be a darned good drink.’

Reminiscent of a white Burgundy, this wine displays aromas of nectarine and lemon peel. The palate is rich, complex and generous with citrus and melon fruit, minerality and finely integrated oak characters.
A real bottle of wow here! Come and grab a couple as they're disappearing quickly. Cheers!
