About The Wine

Dave Bicknell's Single Vineyard Series Willowlake Pinot Noir is a great example of Upper Yarra Pinot in full flight.

It's imbued with sublime fruit flavours, the nuances of this great site being articulated with sensitive, traditional winemaking from Bicknell. James Halliday labelled it a wine, "embedded with a soprano personality." in his glowing 95 point review

In 2016, Dave has produced a lovely wine which is ripe and ready to go.

Best to get some of this while you can.

About Oakridge

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.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Sapid, cool and tangy red fruit, etched with the sort of fine-grained tannic composure and pulsing acidity, seldom seen outside of Burgundy. The oak sits in there somewhere, perfectly integrated. Like berries bursting through the mouth. The sweetness is detectable, yet never trop. A north-facing site, embedded with a soprano personality." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
