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 Pinot Noir grown on Oakridge's north-facing Hazeldene vineyard on the red volcanic soils of Gladydale.
This 2021 Oakridge Hazeldene Pinot Noir is another complex, flavoursome offering with impressive depth and wide appeal. Opening with lovely aromatics, there's plenty of fruits of the forest, red berry, a hint of pomegranate along with a touch of Chinese five spice.
The palate has a great vibrancy of fruit flavour that is balanced perfectly with supple fruit tannins, raspberry and dark cherry flavours abound with a bright acid line in support and providing drive. A high quality single vineyard Yarra Pinot Noir that offers exceptional value-for-money at this price.
"95 Points. Stand out Pinot Noir. Powerfully fruited, crunchy with spice, tannic and the possessor of real presence. Red cherry, woodsmoke and cranberry flavours run juicily throughout but it’s the waves of both tannin and spice that have this ricocheting to all corners. Wow this is impressive. Nutty oak completes a firm, detailed, beautifully fruited picture. Tasted: Oct22. 13.2% alc. $45 Screwcap Drink: 2024 - 2032+"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
