Bob Oatley’s mantra is that all wines should be a “darned good drink”

It is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor if you are under the age of 18.

Blackcurrant and crushed leaf flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon are the dominant varietal characters here with perfume of violets and savoury, slightly rustic touch of Touriga, also providing a little bit of grip. A unique and satisfying red to partner food now and over the next decade.

“We have a vineyard in McLaren Vale quite near the village, a special place that took half a lifetime to find. Old vines, some more the 80 years of age planted on a South East facing slope, protected from strong winds and facing the gentle moving sun. The vines (Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon) are planted in three distinct soil types at the top middle and bottom sections of the hillside, so we find different characteristics from each of the vineyard sections giving added complexity and interest to the wine we make. We farm in a sustainable manner with passion and care, also on the property we have a small wildlife refuge and large beautiful rose garden – the noble pasture of the grapevine. The vineyard is our special place but McLaren Vale is truly our ‘Home’ vineyard.” Chris Hancock
