“Proud Winemaking Heritage and Contemporary Innovative Style”
The octogenarian Robert Oatley, yachtsman, Hamilton Island owner, businessman and founder of Rosemount Estate, is one of the most celebrated personalities in the Australian wine industry. He started his wine career in the 1960s and quickly established a reputation as an innovative entrepreneurial wine man, creating the Rosemount Estate brand that developed an impressive pedigree. He sold the estate in 2002, but returned to wine in 2006 by setting up his own range drawn from a variety of sources. The Robert Oatley Signature Series encompasses an impressive portfolio of vineyards nurtured by the winemaking talent of Larry Cherubino and showcasing Australia’s most successful wine styles and regions. Bob Oatley’s philosophy is that all wines should be a “darned good drink”; these are indeed highly digestible wines of elegance, without undue influence of oak, representative of their origin and with a relatively restrained degree of alcohol.
James Halliday in his Australian Wine Companion (2013 Edition) elevated Robert Oatley Vineyards winery to the highest possible Red Five Star rating, In his words: “Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity.”
