Wild Oats emulate the beautifully perfumed red wine styles of Valley Rhone, where small portions of the white grape Viognier are co-vinified alongside a solid backbone of Shiraz. It produces a soft but delightfully lively red that, of all the topical varietal blends, suits Australia's climate best. Wild Oats impresses as a smooth generous Shiraz wine that's enhanced by the fruity, spicey apricot allure of Viognier. Refined in textures and structure, detailed and generous in personality, setting the scene for every occasion.
Wild Oats are aiming for a perfumed and revitalizing style of Shiraz that engages and excites. A backbone of fruit from the estate property at Mudgee is vinified alongside parcels sourced from fine vineyards further afield. Shiraz grows well in Mudgee, the key here is vineyard management, modifying vine canopies to encourage equal ripening of tannins and fruit flavours. There are some real benefits to adding white Viognier juice into the deep dark purple of Shiraz. Rather than diluting the colour and flavour it brightens the black hues, lifting the aromatics and adding a delicious silky texture to the mouthfeel. The finished wine is treated to an extended matured in a selection of fine French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Bright purple colour. A brilliant bouquet of five spice, white pepper and cloves combine gracefully with dark berry fruit flavours of fresh raspberry, ripe plums and maraschino cherries with the perfumed lift of apricot. Middle weight palate offers abundant flavour with the same dark berry fruits and exotic spices as the nose. The finish is a delightful amalgam of finely honed tannins with a final zing of refreshing acidity.

More About Oatley Wines
The Oatley Wines story is of the legendary Oatley family themselves, supported by an outstanding group of extended family and friends
The Oatleys have played an important part in the Australian wine industry since their first vintage at Rosemount Estate in 1974. Those wines were the predecessors of many hundreds of highly awarded and recognised bottlings of fine Australian wine under the Oatley family direction. With the 2001 merger of Rosemount to Southcorp Wines and the subsequent sale of Southcorp to Foster’s in 2005, the Oatleys decided to re-enter the wine business. Logically they followed their calling back to the vineyard and established Oatley Wines, quickly gathering a team of extended family and friends to do the job. Oatley»
