Robert Oatley Signature Series Chardonnay

Robert Oatley Signature Series Chardonnay 2017*

We have known the Robert Oatley wines for decades and they really do know their Chardonnay. This is beautiful example of a Margaret River Chardonnay; well balanced, good fruit, not too heavy on the oak with a long, clean finish.

Region - Margaret River, WA.

Variety - Chardonnay.

Style/Palate - Oaked, medium- bodied.

Cellaring - 4-5 years from release. 

Winemaking -  Premium parcels of grapes were specially selected from a range of sites across the Margaret River region, from Karridale in the south through to Wilyabrup in the north, to create a well balanced, medium weight style in the citrus mould. Matured for a short time in a variety of French oak barriques, twenty per cent new. The winemaker deliberately avoided the traditional secondary malolactic fermentation in order to retain the wine’s long fine acidity.
