Yarra Valley Pinot Noir doesn't get much more deliciously approachable than the Over The Shoulder Pinot Noir made by Dave Bicknell. The fruit for the 2016 comes from vineyards across the Yarra Valley, including Gladysdale, Woori Yallock and Coldstream. Once in the Oakridge winery, it was fermented as whole berries for three weeks for maximum perfume and vibrancy, Bicknell looking to capture the essence of the Yarra each vintage. He's done a great job on the 2016. For what is essentially the 'entry level' wine into the exceptional Oakridge red wine range, the quality is remarkable. Campbell Mattinson said, "This one goes straight into the ‘buy’ column.", good advice to the Yarra Pinot fans, this is a steal.

What it Tastes Like

"It’s not overly expensive but as soon you put it near your nose/mouth all thoughts of price go out the window. It smells and tastes real, varietal, inviting and more. It’s sweet-sour, slightly herbal, smoky, sinewy. It’s light in a good way. It rushes through the mouth but then lingers through the finish. The stated alcohol seems high but I didn’t notice it in the wine; all I noticed was how much I wanted to keep going back for more." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
