We are thrilled to share this recent review of the 2017 Oakridge Original Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon by Australian wine critic and writer Huon Hooke. Marking our 40th anniversary, this Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the original Oakridge Vineyard situated on the red volcanic soils of Seville. This rating places it as Huon’s #1 Cabernet in Australia for the 2017 vintage!
Congratulations to David and the Team on this fantastic result!
“Medium to deep red/purple colour with a bright, fresh, clean cabernet aroma of sweet cassis and background cedar. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with restrained but glorious flavour, and is slightly closed. It has a tight, firm palate, but reveals more and more
blackberry, blackcurrant cabernet character as it airs in the glass. It’s elegant and texturally
refined. A beautiful cabernet with a big future. It demands patience.”
Drink 2021 to 2039
