2017 Oakridge "Over the Shoulder" Rosé Yarra Valley Victoria

SKU #1363629 95 points James Halliday

 The innovative blend of 75% pinot noir, 16% pinot meunier and 9% pinot gris has proved to be a brilliant success thanks to the attention to detail in the vinification. Wild strawberry flavours are on intimate terms with the spicy, tangy acidity. Rose doesn't come better than this. JH  (9/2017)

K&L Notes

Made by 20-plus-year veteran Yarra Valley winemaker David Bicknell. David is considered by many as one of the best Chardonnay producers in all of Australia. The Over The Shoulder label is basically estate fruit that didn't quite make the cut for the much more expensive single vineyard bottlings but still represents excellent quality and an exceptional value. An unusual find in a rosé, this rosé is Pinot Meunier! *94 pts The Wine Front*

Australia

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley and Pyrenees in Victoria; and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
