Oakridge 2020 Over The Shoulder Cabernet Merlot


The Yarra Valley is probably not the first place you would look for an affordable high-quality cabernet merlot blend, but this vibrant and fresh young release from David Bicknell and the team at Oakridge defies expectations to deliver a whole lot of bang for your buck. This is 82% cabernet, 18% merlot from three different regions of the Yarra. A long, cool ripening period has helped construct a purple-hued, juicy cool-climate red with plenty of length and verve. Subtle, food friendly and great value for money. $24.
