Wild Oats Wines are produced by premier Australian winemakers, the Oatley family. Well known for their sailing and tourism pursuits, the Oatley's first major venture was in fact wine. Refined in structure and texture, detailed and generous in personality, and served in the slickest of bright, fashionable packaging - Wild Oats wines set the scene for every enjoyable occasion.
The aim with this blend was to produce a wine with both structure and personality. Whilst matured in predominantly French oak, the wood character does not dominate, allowing the cabernet's blackcurrant and mulberry fruit to stand to the fore. Will age if you wish but drinks very well right now.

''The involvement of Larry Cherubino as consultant has been of enormous benefit to Robert Oatley Vineyards, unlocking the well-stocked treasure troves of high quality WA bulk wine for regional blending at many levels. This is a blend assembled from Frankland River, Mudgee, Pemberton and Margaret River that has worked very well, though the blending sessions must have been fun. Blackcurrant, cassis and plum fruit drive the bouquet and palate, with balance and freshness the keys to the kingdom. It will be best over the next 3 years.''-James Halliday
Tasting Note: Wild Oats Western Australia Cabernet Sauvignon is a bright, vibrant style of red wine with lifted herbal and blackcurrant flavours.
