- One sip of this varietal Chardonnay and you’ll be looking over your shoulder to glimpse at the label of this wine and then be startled at the price. Quality like this just shows the Oakridge commitment to producing wines of distinction and finesse across the board. Very Yarra-like with a core of grapefruit, melon and citrus; the first thing you’ll notice is the creamy texture with barrel like complexity. There’s exceptional flavour before long, lemon inflected finish. 80
- Pale, glowing green. White flowers, preserved lemons, lime peel with hints of flint and cordite. White nectarines and lemon citrus sit over pebbles and river stones. Made more complex by struck match nuances and with no perceptible oak. The finish is long, minerally, tight and fine.
James Halliday says:“
Fresh pear, citrus blossom and smoky oak aromas coexist on the restrained and elegant bouquet; the palate is taut and energetic, with tangy acidity and a bone-dry, and enticingly long, chalky finish.
