2015 Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Blanc de Blancs
Wine Rating 
 
94

Oakridge is one of the best producers of Chardonnay in the Yarra Valley across a number of vineyard sites so it was pretty exciting to see the results when turning their hand to Sparkling.

The result is an exceptional Blanc de Blanc that has vibrancy, depth of fruit and the subtle build of complexity that only comes from extended time on lees. The nose has oyster shell with white peach and lemon. There is an underlying brioche and almond meal character to the wine but it it doesn’t forget its white stone fruit and grapefruit core that fills the mouth with enough acidity and fine bead to give mouthfeel and length.

The finish has a savoury edge to citrus fruits and is sure to evolve over the medium term.
