Robert Oatley Description
Robert Oatley Vineyards is the reincarnation of the Oatley family winemaking dynasty. Wine is 'in the blood' of founder Bob Oatley and his eldest son Sandy, leaders of the family business founded upon a four decade passion for grape growing, wine making and marketing - the combination of which has seen the Oatley family rise to the top of the Australian winemaking scene.

This Margaret River Chard opens with delicate, appealing melon and citrus notes, followed by saline, oyster shell and slightly sweet vanillin oak notes (this is, however, a dry wine). The palate is finely spun with both a chalky and silky mouthfeel, sliced with prickly, saline-like acidity and speckled with minerals. The oak is ever-present but should settle with time.
