About The Wine
There are few Chardonnays that can go toe to toe with the Oakridge Single Vineyard Series for sheer quality compared to price. Of the stunning 2016 releases from esteemed Yarra Valey winemaker Dave Bicknell, the Willowlake Chardonnay may be the best of a brilliant bunch.
The fruit from Willowlake was carefully picked by hand and vinified with traditional Burgundian-inspired winemaking techniques. The result is a very fine Chardonnay of the highest class. The reviews speak for themselves; 96 points from James Halliday and 95 points from Gary Walsh.
For Yarra Chardonnay in this price bracket, this is clearly a standout purchase.
Oakridge is one of the Yarra Valley's most respected wineries.
Under the direction of master winemaker Dave Bicknell, it has been a major player in defining the modern styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Yarra over the last decade.
From the elite 864 range to the amazing value Over The Shoulder range, there's quality at the core of everything Oakridge puts its hand to.
Bicknell has rare touch as a winemaker, carefully eeking out the individual character of each vineyard he works with.
Each wine speaks with absolute clarity of where it comes from. These are excellent, masterfully crafted wines and great value to boot.
