Meet Liz.....

This is Liz.  The amazing lady behind our single vineyard Chardonnay! Liz, along with husband Bernard, is one of the creators of Oakdene.  Liz is an artist, and the brilliant mind behind the marvellous garden and surrounds that inspire our visitors at the Oakdene property.

It is Liz who came up with the idea for the Oakdene Upside-Down house cellar door that has become the iconic symbol of Oakdene.  A selfie hotspot to say the least!

Chardonnay has noticeably evolved over the years and become so well refined that it is now a firm crowd favourite.  We have two Chardonnays here at Oakdene, with differing degrees of oak content, acidity and complexities. 

Both of these are well up there with our most popular, and top selling wines.  Enjoy!



2019 Bellarine Penisula Chardonnay

Bright straw in colour with a lifted bouquet of white stone fruit, pear and green apple notes.  Bright and juicy mid palate, displaying grapefruit and white peach notes with subtle oak characters, and acidity providing overall balance and length. Chardonnay was destemmed and pressed to barrel for fermentation. Then matured in French oak barriques (10% new) for 10 months, fined, filtered and bottled in February 2020. Enjoy now or cellar for 2 to 6 years.





2018 Oakdene Single Vineyard Liz's Chardonnay

Pale straw with a complex bouquet, with notes of spicy oak, white peach, and citrus with barrel ferment characters.  Fresh and bright palate with a generous mid palate weight, white peach, oatmeal and pear balanced by refreshing acidity and cedar oak contributing texture and balance. Hand harvested Chardonnay was pressed and transferred to barrel for fermentation using wild yeast. Post ferment lees stirring was conducted on a fortnightly basis. The wine underwent partial (10%) malolactic fermentation and was matured in French oak barriques (30% new) for 10 months prior to bottling in February 2019.  Enjoy now or cellar for 4 to 8 years.

4 star - Winestate Magazine, September / October – 'Lemon sherbet and green apples on the slightly austere nose with funky notes.  Good length and intensity of varietal fruit flavours'.
