Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Shiraz, Yarra Valley

Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Shiraz, Yarra Valley

Fruit for this wine is sourced from Coldstream vineyards. Ferments are hand-plunged twice daily for a two week period, with ferment temperatures peaking at 35°C until pressing and settling in tank. The wines are then racked to a mixture of French oak barriques. During the wines elevage, the wine was racked twice: from its lees in spring and then again early summer, before blending in June after the following vintage. Red plum, cranberry, beetroot and white pepper aromas are followed on the palate with mint; medium-bodied with fine savoury tannins.
