2014 OAKRIDGE LOCAL VINEYARD SERIES
WILLOWLAKE VINEYARD YARRA VALLEY CHARDONNAY

Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed directly to French puncheons for wild ferment, 11 months maturation on lees. From the Upper Yarra’s oldest vineyard. Unequalled finesse and brightness to its fruit profile, grapefruit and white peach on the bouquet and palate. 13.4% alc, screwcap
97 points, drink to 2024, $36

2015 OAKRIDGE LOCAL VINEYARD SERIES
WILLOWLAKE VINEYARD YARRACHARDONNAY

Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed direct to French puncheons for wild ferment, 10 months maturation. All about extreme length and balance. Low percentage of new oak used, leaving the back-palate and finish to proclaim intense, ripe grapefruit and melon flavours. 13% alc, screwcap
96 points, drink to 2025, $38

2014 OAKRIDGE 864 SINGLE BLOCK RELEASE
DRIVE BLOCK FUNDER & DIAMOND VINEYARD
YARRA VALLEYCHARDONNAY

Described as a late bloomer needing more time when tasted a year ago; now superb. Another level of complexity, depth and length achieved with unmatched finesse. 13.5% alc, screwcap
97 points, drink to 2026, $78
