Deep red and with a purple hue.
Densely fruited aromas of red cherry, cranberry and pomegranate. Sweet spice elements are interwoven beautifully with the fruit and its all framed and by some subtle stylish oak.
The palate displays lashing of fruits, the full spectrum red and dark berries cascade down the mouth. Supple tannins and balanced acidity support the fruit and provide excellent length and persistence of flavour.
This is a beautiful wine, layered and complex. A piece Pinot Noir of excellence

MAGNUMS ALSO AVAILABLE!

All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to destemming 100% of the berries into an open fermenter. Fermentation proceeded naturally and lasted 21 days prior to pressing to a mixture of French oak barrels, of which 10% were new. Malolactic conversion was completed in barrel where the wine remained on its gross lees for 10 months followed by a further 5 months on lees in tank prior to bottling without filtration.

864 Single Block Release
Situated in Australia’s Yarra Valley, Oakridge has been producing quality wine since 1978. Simply named from our address at Coldstream, the 864 range is a showcase of highly detailed micro-selections from the most exceptional single vineyard sites in the Yarra Valley.

Selection
Hazeldene Vineyard Block 1. North facing at 180 metres above sea level. Planted in the red volcanic soils of Gladysdale in 1998 using the MV6 clone and cropped at 6.3 t/Ha

Vintage
A warm, dry early season with ideal flowering conditions has resulted in excellent crops and strong varietal flavours. Flowering occurred in late October, fruit set in December and harvest on March 1st at 13.3⁰ baume.

Reviews

"The vinification of 10% whole bunches, in the bottom of the fermenter, whole berries on top, matured for 10 months in French oak (10% new) is the cornerstone for all the Oakridge Pinots. Brilliantly clear colour; a superbly handled, supple, very long palate. Life and brightness features"
