K&L Notes

Made by 20+-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. A brighter, crisper style of Chardonnay. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L Aussie Wine Buyer)

    This value-priced label from Oakridge showcases the exceptional quality of these wines, at every price. The Chardonnay is one of the best we offer under $20, regardless of region of origin, however winemaker David Bicknell makes the most of the Yarra Valley's cool climate to produce a perfectly poised wine that combines generous fruit with lively acidity, full-bodied yet fresh in style.

    I love the Oakridge label, and to be honest their entry level Over the Shoulder is usually my favorite thing that they do. The OTS line represents an absolutely stunning value for the beauty and complexity that are present in the wines. In the Chardonnay there is generous ripe orchard fruit that is driven by clean acid and a bright freshness that keeps the wine from being heavy. A spectacular wine in its own regards this style also happens to be extremely versatile, pairing well with a number of foods and style preferences.

    Probably one of our best values in Chardonnay, vintage after vintage! While this Chardonnay does not lean toward the large, oak-laden variety, it does still exhibit some richness and texture to complement the orchard fruit on the palate. Overall, it is a cleaner, crisper style of wine, with beautiful creamy white pear and honeycrisp apple notes.
