Robert Oatley 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 was 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 variety and region in which it was grown.

Very deep, youthful, rich red/purple colour and a similarly rich, ripe, layered bouquet of dark plum, pepper-spice, blackberry and dark chocolate, with a high note of oyster-shell. Full-bodied, decadently rich and supple in the mouth, the texture sliding gloriously across the palate. Long, harmonious follow-through. A totally delicious shiraz. Drink: To 2038; Price: $70.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 96 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

The wine is black/purple in colour. There is a gloriously decadent nose, plush with black fruits, black olives and chocolate. Finely balanced with serious concentration, a joy now but if you have good cellaring conditions, twenty years will be a doddle. Seamless, with an ideal acid/fruit balance, velvety tannins and great length, this is a superb Shiraz from a top year. It just oozes chocolate and class. Drink: To 2036; Price: $70.00; Rating: 97 Points; Ken Gargett

The fruit for this refined example of Barossa shiraz from a marvellous vintage has come from a number of low-yielding sites in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. The wine went through largely traditional winemaking before heading into 12 months of low toast and significantly, very fine-grained French oak. Rich and lavish palate held with a fine focus as it extended effortlessly to a very long finish. This has great ageing potential. Drink: 2024 - 2036; Price: $70.00; Rating: 96 Points; Ray Jordan

Larry Cherubino heads to the Barossa and Eden Valleys to source fruit for this deeply flavoured, limited-release wine. Glossy and elegant, the wine resonates with ripe satsuma plum, blackberry fruits and classy French oak nuance. The Barossa Valley provides the richness and horsepower and the cooler Eden Valley the graceful line. Tight fine tannin and drive. A wonderfully balanced and textural release. Drink to: 2035; Price: $70.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
