Robert Oatley Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The Daily Drop panel has a soft spot for Margaret River Cabernet due to the fine structure of the fruit and the tannins. This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon at a fantastic price.

Robert Oatley Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

 

Region - Margaret River, WA.

Variety - Cabernet Sauvignon.

Style/Palate - Oaked, medium- bodied.

Cellaring - 10-12 years from release. 

Winemaking - Grapes from the northern end of Margaret River, primarily around Wilyabrup, were harvested at ideal flavour and tannin ripeness, fermented then matured for ten to twelve months in French oak from a variety of coopers. A very good growing season has helped deliver well-balanced wines that will develop gracefully in bottle.  

Robert Oatley Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

"Primarily from Wilyabrup, the remainder from Carbunup and Cowaramup, matured in French oak for 12-15 months. Bright crimson-purple; this massively over-delivers, steeped in redcurrant and cassis fruit, soft but persistent tannins, French oak joining hands with the fruit and letting out a cry of exaltation 'you bewdy'!" 95 Points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2019 (on the 2016 vintage).
