The 2012 Robert Oatley Signature Series Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc 2012 is beautiful on the nose and excellent on the palate. Great floral, tropical fruit, apple, grassy and steely notes. Fresh and crisp! Tasted January 16, 2014 (91/100)
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A bright, crisp SB in true Oatley style, with ringing tropical fruit flavours of passionfruit and hint of lime and fresh cur grass; makes you feel like it's summer in January!
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Light-bodied with a slight effervescence. Bone dry with notes of lime zest, green apple, fresh grass. Steely and crisp acidity. Deliberately less tropical than it's tik tok pocketwatch western australia SB.
Very good with my Proscuitto Encrusted Scallops
Drink now. Good value at $17.95
Vintages TBD
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The 2012 Robert Oatley Signature Series Maragaret River Sauvignon Blanc was delicate with declicous passion fruit, lychee, asparagus, lemon, and cantalope notes. Very different stylistically from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, however, very approachable with attractive texture and purity of expression. 88 pts. Matt Steeves, January 2014.
Nina reviewed this wine as follows:

Fresh, crisp, aromatic, with tropical fruit and herbs aromas.
