Irresistible is the word.
About The Wine
Pinot Meunier can be a charming grape when handled well. The lesser known Champagne variety is a mutation of Pinot Noir, sharing many of the same characteristics its predecessor is famous for.
This is a light-medium bodied wine which is immensely likeable. Think of it as Pinot Noir with some attitude.
Campbell Mattinson awarded the 2017 vintage of this 94 points remarking "My gosh. Young, fresh red wine can barely be more, well, more-ish", James Halliday awarded 96 points calling it "irresistible".
Dave Bicknell only makes this in only very small quantities, but if you are a fan of this slightly obscure variety, this is surely one of the best pound-for-pound versions in the country.
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.
