Pale straw with green hues. Grilled citrus, yeast, white fleshed stone fruit, brioche, flecks of flint, hints of florals and burnt match complexity. The palate has depth, weight and texture. It crashes across like a wave leaving a sense on generosity a concentration but without losing its shape as the taught, fresh acidity keeps it on line leaving a tangy, very long grapefruit finish.
A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine – handpicking and whole bunch pressing directly to 500 litre French oak puncheons for a natural fermentation followed by 10 month maturation on lees.
Prices Rd is a North facing site situated on the red volcanic slopes of Gladysdale at 360-400mt above sea level. Planted in 1988.
“Five Local Vineyard Series chardonnays this vintage, including this off a north-facing site at Gladysdale. Alas a one-off for Oakridge, who managed to secure fruit from this highly regarded site. A lot of depth across the palate, a richness with grilled nuts and creamy lees making an impression into poached quince and citrus flavours. A hint of toasty oak, and a lemon bath salts sensation to the acidity. Great energy and drive.” – Jane Faulkner
