About The Wine

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 2017 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 from the wonderful 2017 season. For what is essentially the 'entry level' wine into the exceptional Oakridge red wine range, the quality for the dollars here is quite impressive. 

James Halliday dubbed it "Great value." in his 95 point review.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Red fruits, spice, light dusty tannin, fresh feeling, strawberry, and dare I say it, perhaps a touch of the old Burgundy rouge here, not least with its tasty autumnal aftertaste. Lovely to drink. Easy to enjoy. In short, it delivers the Pinot goods. It may well even improve with another year in bottle, though that’s hardly the point." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"From three vineyards, hand-picked, chilled overnight, 90% whole-berry fermented, a 10% whole bunch component blended in. Bright crimson-purple; a sign of great things to come from the '17 vintage in the Yarra Valley. A beautiful pinot for drinking now or later. Long, pure cherry plum fruit; fine tannins. Great value." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
