2017 Oakridge Over The Shoulder Pinot Noir

Yarra Valley

Our Price: $18.99 / bottle (RRP: $23.00 ) Case: 6 x 750ml

'A beautiful pinot for drinking now or later. Long, pure cherry plum fruit; fine tannins. Great value.'
95 Points - James Halliday

  • Arguably Australia's best value Pinot Noir makes a welcome return, and this time it brings the effortlessly cool 2017 vintage in tow.

    The 'Ridge (let them know be known as such) have an effortless way about their wines, and in particular this delectable Pinot. This is a blend of the three major vineyards Oakridge call upon in the Yarra (Estate, Willowlake and Lusatia) and is super fragrant, with cherry and dark plum, plus a wicked little lick of cranberry acidity. Its bright, light, and lithe and for under $20 is a no-brainer. Keep a couple under the stairs, a couple in the fridge (for a little chilled Pinot this Summer) and of course one with the cap already popped for sipping on the couch. Tell your friends and family. This is good Pinot.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Handpicked, chilled overnight, sorted and gently destemmed to try and achieve 90%+ whole berry ferments. Sourced from a mix of the three main Oakridge Vineyard Series sites - Lusatia (Woori Yallock), Estate (Coldstream) and Willowlake.

    Alcohol - 11%

  • REVIEWS

    'From three vineyards, hand-picked, chilled overnight, 90% whole-berry fermented, a 10% whole bunch component blended in. Bright crimson-purple; a sign of great things to come from the '17 vintage in the Yarra Valley. A beautiful pinot for drinking now or later. Long, pure cherry plum fruit; fine tannins. Great value.'

    'Red fruits, spice, light dusty tannin, fresh feeling, strawberry, and dare I say it, perhaps a touch of the old Burgundy rouge here, not least with its tasty autumnal aftertaste. Lovely to drink. Easy to enjoy. In short, it delivers the Pinot goods. It may well even improve with another year in bottle, though that’s hardly the point.'
