Another recipe from Marty@Oakdene

He has done it again! Chef Marty, from Marty at Oakdene has once again shared with us two mouth watering recipes and this time it is an Oakdene staff favourite, Pork Belly!

In case you are still trying to decide on what you should make for Christmas lunch, have a look at these two delicious options, crispy pork belly and papaya salad with sticky palm sugar syrup or slow cooked pork belly with sichuan pear, pickled daikon and king brown mushrooms.  Yummmmmm!!!

We think that pork is perfectly matched with a dry, fruit driven wine like the Oakdene Ly Ly Pinot Gris or the Oakdene Bellarine Peninsula Pinot Grigio, both available at our cellar door.

You can download Marty’s recipes here and try it for yourself!

A Christmas Turkey Feast, Matched with Oakdene Pinot Noir

Our very own revered Chef Marty, from Marty at Oakdene has shared with us two mouth watering recipes to make your Christmas Turkey a little bit fancy.

Complete with all the trimmings, slow cooked escalope with bacon and chestnuts or Malaysian style turkey breast with aromatic spices and saffron potatoes. Sounds delicious right?

Turkey is the perfect match for Oakdene Peta’s Pinot Noir and our Bellarine Pinot Noir. This lighter style of red wine pairs beautifully with it's subtle oak spices and would also be well enjoyed with roast chicken.

2016 Oakdene Jessica Awarded Best Sauvignon Blanc at the Halliday Wine Companion Awards


Awarded Best Sauvignon Blanc at the 2018 Halliday Wine Companion Awards

We are thrilled that our very own Oakdene 2016 Jessica Sauvignon has tonight taken out the top place in its category at the Halliday Australian Wine Companion Awards!  The wine was named Best Sauvignon Blanc and awarded 96 points.

These awards coincide with the release of the latest edition (2018) of the influential manual, James Halliday’s’ definitive guide to Australian Wine.

First produced in 2008 from our 5 acre Sauvignon Blanc parcel planted in 2002.  Jessica Sauvignon was considered a project wine with the aim of producing an alternate style to the fruit driven Sauvignon Blanc gaining a strong foothold in the market.

The 2016 Jessica Single Vineyard Sauvignon, benefited from a slightly warmer growing season than usual, the bouquet displays gooseberry, guava with citrus overtones and subtle barrel ferment characters. The palate is full and complex with restrained tropical fruits, vanilla and a mineral edge, leading to a creamy and rich mid palate, lively acidity and a long textural finish.

A small quantity is available as a celebratory pre-release via our Cellar Door or click here to purchase direct

Halliday Scores Oakdene's 2014 Single Vineyard William Shiraz 95 points!

James Halliday’s Wine Companion has reviewed the current release of our Single Vineyard William Shiraz 2014. See below some great words form Campbell Mattinson giving it  a fantastic 96 points. For the record, this is the fifth vintage in a row the wine has received 95 points or higher from James Halliday's Wine Companion.  ($43.00 a bottle)

“In beautiful form. Meat and spice notes galore but with plush, ripe, generous fruit as a flood of seductive power. Tannin is smoky, filigreed, and deceptively firm. The longer you spend with this wine the more it impresses. It's stellar.”

Drink By 2030

Wine Club Members - Up to 20% Off

Oakdene's End of Summer Blues.
A Six Pack Special Offer 

For Wine Club Members Only


Can you believe it?  Summer is over, it's an end to the heat, the sun and alot of fun.  At Oakdene we have come up with a six pack offer,  End of Summer Blues, that may very well help you to get over it.  

Have you tried any of our blue labels yet?  We would love you to try three of them; the 2014 Oakdene Chardonnay, the 2014 Oakdene Pinot Noir and the 2014 Oakdene Shiraz.  There will be two bottles of each in the pack.  The blue labels are made ready to drink and would be perfect for a dinner party or just to have on the rack ready to share with friends or enhance warm autumn flavours and tasty cheese boards.

The six bottles of wine would normally cost $144.00 but as a Wine Club Member you already enjoy 10% off all of your orders, that would bring the price down to $129.60. We would like to offer all our loyal Wine Club Members an extra 10% off, bringing this pack down to $116.64.That's almost a 20% saving.  JOIN NOW

All of these blue label wines have been reviewed and awarded great scores by judges that you know and trust.

Mike Bennie has reviewed the 2014 Oakdene Shiraz in the last issue of WBM and scored it a fantastic 92 points. "Flighty, frisky feeling Shiraz shows some herbal influence, dusty tannin, slippery texture. It’s set to medium bodied, looks great as a young wine (decant!) but feels like there’s plenty in reserve for mid-term cellaring. Elegant is a good word here."

Gary Walsh has scored the 2014 Oakdene Chardonnay 89 points for Winefront. So...what are you wating for?  A Chardonnay with no name from Oakdene. That’s a change! Peach and green banana, subtle oak. Sunshiny fruit, but with a good cut of acidity and some greener flavours coming through on the finish. Pretty good. 

The 2014 Oakdene Pinot Noir has also been given a great review  but you are going to have to wait until the end of the month for this one.  Stay tuned!

The End of Summer Blues offer is only for the first 100 wine club members or until the end of March.  Take advantage and order this 6 pack today!  Buy Now.
