The second vintages of Robert Oatley's impressive Signature Series wines continue to garner acclaim, both at home and abroad.
In news released this week, Decanter, Europe's most respected wine magazine has announced the 2013 World Wine Awards winners, where judges tasted a record-breaking 13,362 wines to award 156 trophies.
Robert Oatley Signature Shiraz 2011, from South Australia's McLaren Vale, collected the trophy for the top Australian Red Rhône Varietal under £15.
This impressive award adds to numerous golds and trophies garnered by the range of six regional-varietal wines over the past 18 months, including a top-gold for the Signature Riesling 2012, at the 2012 International Riesling Challenge, held in Canberra.
"What a terrific result" said Executive Chairman Sandy Oatley "...that speaks volumes for the quality of the wines being produced by Larry Cherubino and our team of growers and winemakers. No wonder we're enjoying enormous sales success as we present them around the world."
