Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Willowlake Pinot Noir 2018
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.
Fragrant and spicy with freshly picked strawberries and red currant fruits, hints of forest floor and sweet spice. Whole bunch notes just hover in the background. The palate is soft and juicy, vibrant and fresh with delicate silky tannins and a fine line of acidity holding it all in place. The red fruits and rose water cascade through the mouth interwoven and balanced. Fresh finishing and lip smacking. Devine!
From three blocks planted '80-'82. The colour is deceptively light, as is the weight of the palate. Like all top class pinots, its class comes through on the finish and aftertaste. Drink to: 2030; Price: $45.00; Date Tasted: Mar 2020; Alcohol: 13.6%; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
