“The Oakridge 864 Funder & Diamond epitomises
subtle complexity, crystalline purity and incredible focus”
– Chris Crawford, Chair of Judges
This prestigious award further cements Oakridge as one of the nation’s best wineries. The win is also recognition of Oakridge’s Chief Winemaker, David Bicknell, who has been instrumental in lifting the reputation of Australian chardonnay by producing expressive wines of restraint, depth and texture.
Of the 2017 864 Chardonnay, David says “I am extremely proud of this wine and believe that it’s one of our best yet. It all comes down to the quality of fruit grown on one of the Yarra Valley’s best sites”.
