"Enlivening, modern Aussie Chardonnay at its finest." James Suckling

$275

Tasting Notes

"This is a scintillating wine that fuses concentrated fruit presence and power with assertive structure and bracing acid drive. The nose has chalky notes with fresh hazelnut and a flinty, attractive reductive edge, plus stone fruits and citrus intermingled. The palate has commanding weight, neatly crafted shape and impressive length, with winding white peach and an array of citrus fruit flavors long into the finish. Enlivening, modern Aussie Chardonnay at its finest."James Suckling 98pts

OAKRIDGE ESTATE

Founded in 1978, has had a longstanding reputation for quality. It has been blessed with a succession of talented winemakers but cursed by boardroom skirmishes and financial struggle. The winery, located at 864 Maroondah Highway at Coldstream in the Yarra Valley, is now under new ownership including shareholder and veteran Oakridge winemaker (of 10 vintages) Dave Bicknell. It is under his watch that Oakridge has excelled. The fruit is sourced from both company owned and independent grower vineyards. The wines are beautifully made and illustrate the idea that winemaker’s intuition and skill are completely intertwined with the idea of distinguished vineyard site. This is definitely a label to watch over forthcoming years.
