The winemaking team at Robert Oatley Vineyards works with the sole aim to craft premium wines showcasing varietal clarity as well as the unique characteristics of the region from where the grapes were sourced. Named after the nickname given to Bob Oatley as an adventurous young sailor, Wild Oats is an exceptional range of easy drinking and approachable wines crafted for immediate consumption.
The dazzling Robert Oatley Wild Oats Shiraz Viognier is a fusion of 7.5% Viognier grapes with 92.5% Shiraz grapes. This led to the creation of a deep purple hued wine displaying dark shades along the edges. This delightful red wine blend gives off exuberant and lively aromas from its perfumed bouquet. The addition of a small portion of Viognier grapes offers vibrant fruit flavours and spice elements on the soft and generous palate. These lush aromas and flavours provide a silky texture and elegant mouthfeel to this wonderful red wine. The finale is delicious and smooth. With a cellaring potential of 3 to 5 years, this exquisite red wine tastes amazing with roast lamb or veal schnitzel.
