James Halliday Top Cellaring Selections
The 2012 Oakdene ‘William’ Shiraz has been included in James Halliday’s Top Cellaring Selections in June/July, rated a 96.
“Hand harvested, largely destemmed, but some whole bunches, wild yeast-fermented in small open vats, then pressed to French oak (30% new) for mlf and 16 months maturation; gold medal Geelong Wine Show, and three trophies Ballarat Wine Show ’13. Deeply coloured, it has exceptional black cherry and blackberry fruit laced with spice and pepper; perfectly ripened tannins and quality French oak complete a very classy wine.
