Winemaker's Notes:

Finisterre (meaning "Ends of the Earth") has notes of layered earth, cassis, sweet dark fruits, and a silky texture. Robert Oatley's constant pursuit of quality finds them among the great viticultural regions of Australia, each offering a unique combination of earth and climate, allowing vines to flourish and produce fruit with great balance. Hand harvesting, fruit sorting and intuitive winemaking delivers wines with clarity, purity, great texture and flavor expression.
