DESCRIPTION
  • The Oakridge Over the Shoulder range of wines is fresh and vibrant. Exemplifying the flavours and quality found in the Yarra Valley, these wines pair beautifully with a range of foods, and showcase the beautiful cool-climate style of the Yarra region.

    The 2018 Over the Shoulder Pinot is sourced from three different vineyards: Lusatia in Woori Yallock, Willowlake in Gladysdale, and the Oakridge Estate vineyard in Coldstream.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Handpicked, chilled overnight, sorted and gently destemmed to try and achieve 90%+ whole berry ferments. 3 weeks in open top fermenters prior to pressing into French oak barrels for maturation, before blending and bottling.

    TASTING NOTE

    Bright, pale red with a light purple hue. Beautiful, fragrant and forward red fruit – redcurrants, raspberry and cherry. Under, there are suggestions of milky-vanilla oak, and brown spice from whole bunch inclusion. The palate is soft, juicy and round with fine, velvety tannins from start to finish. The crunchy cranberry acidity adds length and refreshment. Fruit forward, balanced, but certainly not simple.

  • REVIEWS

    'Hand-picked, chilled overnight, 90% whole-berry fermented, a 10% whole bunch component blended in. Bright crimson-purple; an example of great things coming from the '17 vintage. A beautiful pinot for drinking now or later. Long, pure cherry plum fruit; fine tannins.'
