  • THE BRIEF

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • Sourced from exclusively from Oakridge's close planted R6VW28 (2010) vineyard, the 864 Syrah represents some of the best red winemaking at Oakridge. Impeccable, exceptional vintage.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to tipping directly fermenter for whole bunch fermentation. After a three day cold maceration, fermentation spontaneously commenced peaking at 32°C. The fermenter was neither plunged nor pumped over during a three week fermentation. The wine was then pressed to French oak barrels for a 14 month maturation before blending and bottling.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Complex, earthy, a bit of whole bunch funk wrapped around a core of bright red and black cherry fruit. Oak, tannins and acid are all just so. It is is a wine you can drink with gusto or sit back with for quiet contemplation – it has it all. Top cool-climate Syrah that will do you proud now or in years to come.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Oakridge was first setup in 1978 as what was originally a family company. By the turn of the century the label was gobbled up by a large Australian wine company (where it flailed) until being taken back into family hands with the talented David Bicknell on winemaking duties in 2002. Since then Oakridge - and David Bicknell - has garnered a reputation as one of our finest Chardonnay makers, with a particularly handy Pinot and Shiraz or two also in the Oakridge portfolio Oakridge is all about the Yarra Valley, and particularly the Upper Yarra where it sources much of it's fruit from. The range starts with the Over the Shoulder wines which are designed as food friendly entry-level drops that would likely find a home on wine lists around the nation. The next step up is the Estate wines, and Local Vineyard Series, which serve to highlight several different vineyards around the Yarra. Finally, the top tier is the 864 wines, including a single vineyard Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with the Chardonnay in particular regarded as one of Australia's finer modern whites.
