"If you ever want to pass some wine wisdom on to someone, just say these three words: Oakridge And Chardonnay."  Campbell Mattinson, The WineFront 

“Any discussion of the exalted state of Australian chardonnay today will include Dave Bicknell.”  Huon Hooke, The Real Review

“From a single vineyard in Woori Yallock, from 2008 plantings of 95 clone.  Hand picked and whole-bunch pressed to puncheons for maturation and fermentation.  A bright green gold, this is immediately engaging and open with its aromas of white peach, white flowers and preserved lemons.  With its superb purity of fruit, I love the way the acidity cuts through the wine, giving it backbone and length.  All the 2020 Vineyard Series chardonnays are subtle variations on a theme, with the Henk being my pick today.  They all completely over-deliver for the price, too.”  97 points, Philip Rich, Halliday Wine Companion

"This is a piercing release with green pineapple, cedar, oatmeal and lime flavours bursting through the palate.  Indeed it’s a wine that just seems to go on and on.  It’s lean and daring but it has enough flavour to carry it and then there’s that finish, which is impressive to say the least.  What this wine needs is time, to flesh out.  It has all the line and length you could wish for."  93 points, Campbell Mattinson, The WineFront

Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley

Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
