Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13.3%

A flagship winery of Victoria's Yarra Valley, Oakridge's Over The Shoulder wines are consistently outstanding examples of the region's hero varietals at exceptional value prices. These are fresh, medium-bodied and vibrantly fruit-driven wines that lend themselves to be enjoyed in their youth.

This 2017 Oakridge Over The Shoulder Pinot Noir is a perfect example of this, loaded with plenty of ripe red fruit, strawberry and cherry flavours, vibrant acidity and a mouth-watering finish that makes it pretty compelling at this price.

"95 Points. 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. Screwcap. 13.3% alc. To 2029. $23" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019.

"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. Rated: 90 Points Tasted: Apr18 Alcohol: 13.3% Price: $23 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2021+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
