The name ‘Botiler’ was passed down through generations of Walter’s family – notably his grandson, Theobald, who journeyed to Ireland with Henry II. The title was eventually anglicised to ‘Butler’. The original duties included selecting and presenting the first cup of wine to the King and the butler crest was depicted on golden cups in the Second Quarter.

Description

In 2000, siblings Cath and Russ Oates made a red blend in their farm shed to share with friends and family. The grapes came from the ends of the vine rows the machine harvester couldn’t pick, hence the name. Fruit was picked from various blocks and varieties around the region and added to the ferment until there was sufficient volume for a barrel or two. That’s how Oates Ends was born.

A decade later and with an impressive international winemaking career behind her, Cath decided it was time to make wines to capture the evident quality of the family’s Wilangri vineyard, first planted in 1999. Oates Ends was reborn.

The vineyard grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc on complex loam soils over deep well draining gravels, producing fine, elegantly structured wines. Careful management and hand harvesting of fruit enables the finest detailed winemaking approach. The vineyard is run with sustainable principles. The wine range includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon.
