    Description

    Oakridge winemaker and CEO David Bicknell has proved his worth time and again as an extremely talented winemaker. In 2012, amongst numerous awards and accolades, Oakridge was voted Australian Winery of the Year in The Age & Sydney Morning Herald Good Wine Guide.
    Over the Shoulder wines are great examples of wines that typify varietal characteristics of the Yarra Valley. Wines which are fresh, vibrant and medium bodied. Low alcohol wines with intensity, marvellous tightness and sharp focus. Dry, textural and crunchy with pristine pear flavours, this is a refreshing alternative to New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
    Rated 94/100 by James Halliday.

    Country Description

    South Australia

The major grape varieties are predominantly Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Semillon, Pinot noir, Riesling, and Sauvignon blanc. Some of the more famous wine areas include Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley and Margaret River.

    Region Description

    Victoria

    Victoria is located in south east Australia. With over 600 wineries, Victoria has more wine producers than any other Australian wine-producing state but ranks third in overall wine production due to the lack of a mass bulk wine-producing area like South Australia's Riverland and New South Wales's Riverina. Winemaking is spread out across the state and features premier wine regions such as Heathcote, Rutherglen and the Yarra Valley. Single varietal wines produced in the region include the Australian mainstays of Shiraz and Chardonnay as well as the more obscure Viognier, Pinot noir, Graciano and Tannat. The style of wine ranges from full body red wine to Madeira-like fortified wines such as Liqueur Muscat.
