Winemaker's Notes:

Chardonnay's versatility makes for interesting winemaking and we employ several techniques to achieve our goal of producing a modern Chardonnay that is crisp, fresh and exciting. We are aiming to capture the lemon / lime citrus flavours and subtly support this with thoughtful use of high quality, tight grain French oak barrels for fermentation and maturation.

About Robert Oatley:

Famed Australian Vintners, Bob and Sandy Oatley, founders of Rosemount Estate, began their next wine venture to pay homage to the many terrific regions of Australia and the grapes most suited to the terroir.

Wherever he makes wine, Bob Oatley's underlying philosophy is to find the right vineyard with the right soil and match it to the right variety.

With the guidance of winemaker, Larry Cherubino, Robert Oatley Vineyards shares the expression of regions, such as Margaret River, McLaren Vale, Yarra Valley, Great Southern and Central Ranges.
