Cracka Review

Robert Oatley Wines has a catch-cry of 'darned good drinks', and that pretty much sums up this bonny little Rizza out of WA, but of course we are going to tell you more! There's a heap of lemons, limes and Granny Smith apples on the nose, with a whiff of honeysuckle florals. Meanwhile, the palate is light-bodied, dry and zesty, with snappy citrus flavours, brisk acidity, and a crisp finish. Bring on the sushi!

Winemaker's Notes

"With over forty years of winemaking experience I’ve learnt there are two important elements when it comes to creating great wine. Firstly, the best wines show a true sense of the land – that ideal combination of grape variety and region. Secondly, they taste even better when shared with friends. I hope you enjoy drinking these wines as much as we enjoyed making them."
- Robert Oatley, Founder

Robert Oatley Signature Series: The Robert Oatley Signature Series draws on a remarkable portfolio of vineyards nurtured by the winemaking talent of Larry Cherubino showcasing Australia’s most successful wine styles and regions. Bob Oatley’s mantra is that all wines should be a “darned good drink”, and the high quality Signature Series delivers immediate appeal, with satisfying flavours over an elegant frame. Each wine embodies the grape varietal and region in which it was grown.

Region Notes: Recognised by many as Australia’s newest high-quality Riesling region, the Great Southern encompasses a spectrum of sub-districts that are delivering remarkably delicious and often age-worthy wines of tremendous success.

Winemaking Notes: We selected a number of individual parcels of free-run juice from Porongorup, Frankland River and Mount Barker, fermented them with neutral yeast to retain the inherent fruit characters, and used minimal additions to produce a varietally pure, excellent early to mid-term drinking wine. Enjoy now to 2020.

Tasting Note: Reflecting another outstanding vintage in Western Australia’s leading Riesling region, this is a softly textured, crisp, dry, lemon-lime fruited wine with a fine line of acidity.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Still crystal white, devoid of colour; the highly floral rose petal and citrus blossom bouquet is the foreplay for the will-o'-the-wisp acidity of the plate as it dances in time with the lime/lemon fruit duo. This is a beautifully cadenced Riesling that will reveal all its secrets in 10 years, and live for another 10 years beyond that.
