Robert Oatley Signature McLaren Vale GSM 2016 (12 x 750mL), SA.

A blend of 43% Grenache, 35% Shiraz and 22% Mourvedre (Mataro) from southern McLaren Vale, where the hills run down to the ocean. Fermented on skins in a combination of open and closed fermenters and matured in French oak for 6 months. Enjoy now to 2023.

All three of these grape varieties share a long history in McLaren Vale – Australia’s most successful region with this triple blend emulating the wines of Cotes du Rhone. The warm, maritime-influenced climate and red-brown loamy soils produce rich dark fruit characters and supple tannins in their exemplary red wines.
