Winefront Review by Campbell Mattinson
Campbell Mattinson has reviewed some of our wines for Winefront. The Oakdene Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2014 has scored 91 points. The Oakdene Liz's Chardonay 2013 and, Oakdene's William Shiraz 2013 have both scored 94 points. Here is what he had to say about our wines:
Oakdene Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2014 - Fruit-driven sauvignon blanc out of the Bellarine Peninsula area of the Geelong region.This boasts good/excellent intensity. It’s all fruit, fresh and vibrant, with tangy Granny Smith apple notes bursting confidently through the palate. Lime, lemongrass and passionfruit flavours keep the line going but the crunch of apple is the dominant impression. Good stuff.
Oakdene Liz's Chardonnay 2013 - Beautifully balanced chardonnay. Complex and delicious at once. Oatmeal, steel, white peach and apple flavours with a clip of spicy oak. Right on the money. Terrific chardonnay drinking.
Oakdene William Chardonnay 2013 - Multiple gold medal and trophy winner. 100% Geelong shiraz.It’s not hard to see why. It’s an opulent expression of a cool climate shiraz. It has the spice and the cherried fruit, but it has layers of blackberry, toast, musk and clove flavours. It makes an impression. A good one. And keeps that impression going through a long, finely tannic finish.
