Winemaker's Notes:

Harvested at night and treated like we would make an aromatic white, the sangiovese grapes are kept cool and the juice immediately crushed off the skins to give the vibrant yet pale color. It has been deliberately made at the drier end of the rosé spectrum.

The 2010 growing season came off a reasonably cold and dry winter, with rain later in the season that freshened the canopies and led to intensely flavoured grapes.

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.
