Rolleston Vale Shiraz

£7.99

Rolleston Vale Shiraz
An approachable Aussie Shiraz from the high altitude vineyards of the Oatley family. Rolleston Vale Shiraz is packed with rich dark berry fruit and a hint of spice on the finish. The fresh style makes it highly versatile.

Robert Oatley Vineyards is the reincarnation of the Oatley family winemaking dynasty. Wine is ‘in the blood’ of our late founder Bob Oatley and his eldest son Sandy, leader 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.

With interests spanning the world of competitive sailing, tourism, hospitality and of course, wine – the family produces wines both of immediate appeal and cellar-ability, with satisfying flavours over an elegant frame, under a variety of stylish labels including Robert Oatley, Wild Oats, Pocketwatch, Four in Hand, Montrose and Craigmoor.

Over forty years of nurturing grapevines and making wine has taught the Oatley family many lessons. Site selection is paramount, that ‘sense of place’, as where you choose to grow your grapes is vital to both style and quality. The Oatley approach is to overlay this philosophy with an outstanding team of grape growers and wine makers, using the best possible equipment, to allow them every chance of producing a winner.

The task is clear: to craft wines that have varietal clarity, focus and which reflect their provenance – in a very modern fashion. Wines of character and integrity.
