Easy-drink style – minimal intervention – sustainable viticulture
From the Robert Oatley winemaking team come ‘Helmsman’; a range of fresh, easy-drinking wines from their vineyards in the Central Ranges region. Vineyards are tended as organically as possible and wines are made with minimal intervention, reflecting a dedication to sustainable grape growing and wine production practices.
The Pinot Grigio is wonderfully fresh and fruity. With soft acidity and a mouthwatering finish it provides an intriguing alternative to the ubiquitous Pinot Grigio of the Veneto.
The second wine in the range is a Bordeaux-style blend, dominated by 75% Merlot and supported by Cabernet Sauvignon. An ideal match for grilled meats and stews, this wine displays generous red fruits, rounded tannins and a juicy finish.
