Welcome to our news page, here is where we will be highlighting events and news from around the winery.
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. James Halliday - winecompanion.com.au. 95 Points. "The colour isn't deep, but the hue is excellent; there's a lot to please in the wine, notably its freshness and varietal expression; the tannins are fine and persistent, as they should be. A stylish medium bodied cabernet that takes you by grace, not storm. Date tasted: 19/10/2017 Drink by: 2029"
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. Mike Bennie – Wine Front, Nov 2017. 94 Points Even keeled, finely formed cabernet of distinguished feel. Attractive bouquet suggests all things Margaret River in blue berries, light plumminess, bay leaf, a smidge of black olive with scents of toasty oak amongst it all. There’s fine ribbons of tannin clenching dark fruit, spice and more dried bayleaf in the palate – a long, even flow of medium weight elegance. The finish comes with a lacy flourish of tannin and freshness. It’s serious stuff, structured and detailed, well hewn, ‘classic’-feeling. An impressive release. Where were you for Oates Ends first releases..? Drink : 2017 - 2030
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. Ray Jordan - The West Australian Wine Guide 2018. 93/100 "Impressive Cabernet from this great vintage in Margaret River. The fruit comes from Wilyabrup. So much to like from this excellent cabernet. Touch of blackcurrant, a little black olive and even a trace of graphite. It is all together engaging with an integrated palate of grainy tannins and fine-grained French oak. Effortless through to the long finish.
2016 Tempranillo. Ray Jordan - The West Australian Wine Guide 2018. 94/100 Best of the West – Top WA Tempranillo “Boy, Cath Oates has really nailed this delightful Tempranillo. It’s medium bodied with soft and supple fleshy fruit characters. Fine grainy tannins work into the beautiful fruit on the palate. Rasberry and cherry notes with excellent poise and structure through to the finish. Love drinking this.”
