  • THE BRIEF
  • The Yarra Valley has three distinct geographic zones or sub-regions - lower warmer, middle cool and higher cooler sub-regions. Oakridge have matched particular varieties with the specific sites to deliver outstanding examples of single vineyard wines.

    The fruit for this wine was sourced from the north facing Hazeldene Vineyard, sited in the red volcanic soils of Gladysdale.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • This wine was sourced from the north-facing Hazeldene Vineyard, sited in the red volcanic soils of Gladysdale.

  • 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.

    JAMES SUCKLING


    A succulent, fleshy pinot with vibrant aromas of red cherries and strawberries. Gently spicy, sappy and very fresh. There's a lithe, fresh and tangy mouthfeel to the palate. Acidity plunges up through the smoothly layered tannins, delivering an energetic, zesty finish. Drink or hold.'

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    Another bang on release from Oakridge. Flavour, length and form are all in a good place but it's the texture and/or mouthfeel that makes it such a pleasure. Macerated berries, flecks of herbs, flashes of undergrowth and a smoky/tangy finish. Floral notes too, like roses. Lovely light-but-vibrant hue to the wine too. Lovely.'

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Deepish red colour with a tint of purple, the aromas red-fruited and minerally, cherries and strawberries with an ironstone overlay. It's medium-bodied and restrained in the mouth, with tight flavour and refinement, line and length, the aftertaste lingering, with spice and red fruit flavours galore. Lovely wine.'
