Since its founding in 1978, Oakridge has been making wines in the Yarra Valley and has produced some of the finest examples of cool climate wines seen in Australia. Oakridge is family owned, with a philosophy of producing wines that reflect the terroir of the Yarra Valley. The three ranges explore various grape varieties, meso-climates within the Yarra Valley, individual sites and winemaking approaches.

Overall the impression is of a bright, juicy Beaujo-esque wine that is both easy to drink and refreshing at the same time. Dark bright red. Summer pudding nose - cherry, wild strawberry and red currants with the faintest hint of vanilla pod. Full flavoured with black cherry, pomegranate, plums and spice. It has depth and weight but also structured with sappy-satiny tannins and a pleasant savoury texture. 

This one goes straight into the ‘buy’ column. It’s not overly expensive but as soon you put it near your nose/mouth all thoughts of price go out the window. It smells and tastes real, varietal, inviting and more. It’s sweet-sour, slightly herbal, smoky, sinewy. It’s light in a good way. It rushes through the mouth but then lingers through the finish. The stated alcohol seems high but I didn’t notice it in the wine; all I noticed was how much I wanted to keep going back for more. Tasted: Feb 17; Alcohol: 14.4%; Price: $23; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2017-2021; Rated: 91 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

Juicy and moreish, Oakridge's entry-level pinot beams red to black cherry flavours across a ripe mid-palate, licked with anise and framed by subtle vanillin oak. The wine has a pulpy texture and a joyous bounce to it, from start to finish. The vintage's inherent heat is stashed beneath the wine's ample generosity and well applied structural pillars.
