Pocketwatch wines pay tribute to Bob's great great grandfather James Oatley (1770 – 1839). One of Australia's early convict settlers, James was a master watch and clockmaker who was soon pardoned by Governor Macquarie, appointed Keeper of the Sydney Town Hall Clock and commissioned to install the still functioning turret clock in the pediment of the Hyde Park Barracks. As part of his remuneration he received a number of land grants from Governor Brisbane, including a 300 acre lot that is now the southern Sydney suburb of Oatley.
The Pocketwatch Cabernet Sauvignon is expertly crafted from perfectly ripened parcels of grapes from the Oatley vineyards. A quality French oak influence is present with layered, flavoursome and smooth bright ripe cherry, blackcurrant and leafy notes.
''Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity'' ~ James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion 2013), rated 5 stars.
Tasting Note: Bright ripe cherry, blackcurrant and leafy notes with generous forest fruits and ripe berries to the fore and soft tannins. This delicious wine leave you wanting more.
