Winemaker Notes

Wild Oats Shiraz continues the Oatley family history of fine craftsmanship. In selecting a number of richly flavored parcels of grapes from our vineyards in the Central Ranges of NSW, and with quality French oak influence, our winemakers have created a sumptuous and velvety red wine with complexity and some spicy characteristics. It tastes of berries, plums, baking spices and a touch of mocha on the lasting firm finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Bright and jazzy, with vivid red berry and cherry fruit, hinting at cinnamon and licorice notes as the finish lingers easily and expressively. Drink now through 2018.

Wild Oats, Australia
The constant pursuit of quality finds Wild Oats 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.

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 winemakers, using the best possible equipment, to allow them every chance of producing a winning wine.

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.

Though Syrah originated in the Rhône Valley of France, Australia is home to the oldest Syrah (called Shiraz here) vines on the planet. Found in Australia’s Barossa Valley, where phylloxera has never threated viticulture, these ancient vines are between 140 to 175 years old!

Having brought fame and merit to the country’s wine scene since the early 1950s, namely via the debut of Penfolds Grange, today Syrah (Shiraz) claims rank as the most widely planted grape in Australia. In fact, the amount of land dedicated to Shiraz in Australia is now almost equivalent to what it is in France. Australian Shiraz has its own personality with flavors and aromas of intense blackberry, fruitcake, menthol, tobacco leaf and umami. Conveniently one can find great Australian Shiraz at a variety of price points but the very best will be dense, gloriously complex and capable of long aging.
