96 Points - Philip Rich | RRP $45
Oakridge has long been considered one of the stars of the Yarra Valley and among the finest cool climate winemakers in Australia. The 'Vineyard Series' explores the unique 'terroir' of individual Yarra Valley sites; with grapes for this Chardonnay grown on Oakridge's north-facing Hazeldene vineyard on the red volcanic soils of Gladydale.
This 2021 Oakridge Hazeldene Chardonnay is another vibrant, intensely flavoured offering with some serious appeal for lovers of premium, cool-climate Chardonnay. Light floral notes leap out of the glass, with plenty of nectarine, grapefruit, white peach and ginger notes coming together beautifully on the long, complex palate. Another impressive single vineyard offering from Oakridge, this offers excellent value at this discounted price.
"96 Points. A superb Hazeldene with white peach, wet stone, fresh mint, white flowers and a hint of macadamia nut.

Special Value"- Philip Rich, Halliday Wine Companion 2023.
"95+ Points. Despite its complexity, and it’s intensity, this is an easy chardonnay to love. The fruit floods, the oak seduces, the linger of the finish makes it memorable. Grilled peach, toast, hazelnuts, apple and a custard cream aspect have this wine singing across various octaves. It rolls with its own punches. It’s a beauty. Tasted: Oct22. 13.5% alc. $45 Screwcap Drink: 2023 - 2035"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
