2017 Oakridge Over the Shoulder Rose

The innovative blend of 75% pinot noir, 16% pinot meunier and 9% pinot gris has proved to be a brilliant success thanks to the attention to detail in the vinification. Wild strawberry flavours are on intimate terms with the spicy, tangy acidity. Rose doesn't come better than this.

DESCRIPTION
  • Three Pinots all together in the holy triumvirate from the kings of the Yarra Valley, Oakridge, and master winemaker extraordinaire David Bicknell - Noir (75%) Gris (9%) and Meunier (16%). This blend make a bloody delicious drop of wine, and surprised there aren't more giving it a nudge (Albert Mann in Alsace springs to mind).

    You don't need to over think, you don't to ruminate on what makes it special, you just need a hot day, a beach or balcony, and a nice chilled bottle of this wine to be reminded of the merits of Rose. Hard pressed to find a better way to spend $19 on a bottle of wine. So much to like in this wine, from the slightly tangy redcurrant palate, to the pear and smoke drenched aromas. Tangy, whimsical and a bargain. Tick, tick tick.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    This is a special wine that is all about the time and the place, does it really need to finer details explained to tell you this is something special? 

    Alcohol - 13%

    TASTING NOTES

    Pretty florals, red berries and a dusty minerality. We pick up fruity notes of wild strawberries, white cranberries and under-ripe raspberry. There are hints of white pepper and dried herbs.

  • REVIEWS

    'It’s a bloody beautiful wine. 95 Halliday points was miserly. 94 The Wine Front points is about right. Though we probably should be 95 too. Rose of the Year.'

    95 Points - James Halliday

    'The three Pinots united here – Noir, Meunier and Gris. All for one, and one for all! It’s bloody beautiful! Need you know more? Touch of smoke and wildness, redcurrant and pears, savoury and dry, fine acidity and a little brick dust to the texture, a little fairy dust in the winemaking, perhaps, and an almost earthy but fresh finish of fine length.  The flavour lingers in your mouth. Well sophisticated. And cheap!'
    94 Points - Gary Walsh

    'Medium to full depth salmon-pink colour. The bouquet is meaty, savoury, smoky and 'forest floor' pinot noir-like, more berry-like as it warmed, while the palate has a faint lick of sweetness running up against bright acidity. There's a raspberry mid-palate and then a clean, dry finish. A fruit-driven style, and very well-made.'
