About

The Oakridge 864 Funder & Diamond Drive Block Chardonnay is one of the giants of Australian Chardonnay. Crafted by one of the country’s most gifted makers of the variety, this single block wine is considered by many as a benchmark wine for the region.

The 2014 vintage is characterised by coiled power and intensity. The impact of powerful fruit beautifully framed by trimmings of fine French oak and some savoury lees character. Complexity tempered with an easy approachability. It’s a wine to behold.

The reviews for this release have been outstanding with James Halliday awarding this vintage 97 points and 95 points from the Wine Front’s Gary Walsh. This is an excellent release of this much revered future icon of the Yarra Valley.

What It Tastes Like

“Prophetically described as a late bloomer needing more time when tasted a year ago, now quite simply superb. Upper Yarra chardonnay at its best, with another level of complexity, depth and length achieved with unmatched finesse.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
