Pocketwatch Chardonnay is a terrific example of modern Australian chardonnay, created blending a number of parcels of grapes from the Central Ranges of NSW. Fruit and texture are the vital components, with oak playing a supporting role.
Pocketwatch wines pay tribute to Bob's great great grandfather James Oatley. 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.
Tasting Note: Lovely pineapple and fresh fig flavours, creamy, spicy oak with a touch of vanilla and a long, textured finish.
