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.
Over the Shoulder wines are great examples of wines that typify varietal characteristics of the Yarra Valley. Wines which are fresh, vibrant and medium bodied. Low alcohol wines with intensity, marvellous tightness and sharp focus.
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.
