Natalie's Score: 90/100

Attractive fleshy black plums and some toasty oak on the nose. Gorgeously rich, full-bodied and plush on the palate. Terrific price for this quality. Try it with grilled steak or pork chops.

Shiraz food pairings: steak, BBQ hamburgers.

Plush Pork Wine

Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Sweet baking spices, slight stewed fruit, mocha, tar, slight herbaceousness. Exceptional value priced Shriaz. 91 points. Matt Steeves, Quercus Vino January 2014.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Oatley's Shiraz's tend to be lighter and brighter than typical Aussie Shiraz. Oatley works with the wines to achieve regionality and clarity of varietal expression. This medium -bodied Shiraz is a good example, with sweet baking spices, ripe stewed fruit, mocha and slight smoke/tar flavours.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby in colour, intense with ripe dark fruit, sweet and pungent spices and earthy notes, this wine is soft on the palate with refreshing acidity while the flavours linger on the palate.
Drink now, or cellar until 2016.
Pair with grilled red meats, or enjoy on its own.
Date tasted: May 2014.

Tic Tok Pocketwatch Shiraz 2011
Great value! A full bodied wine that features rich flavours and aromas of dark fruit, mocha and spice. Pairs excellently with steak! Tasted January 16, 2014 (89/100)
A sumptuous and velvety red wine with complexity and some spicy characteristics. It tastes of berries, plums, baking spices and a touch of mocha on the firm, lasting finish. Source: Winery (Robert Oatley Vineyards)
