Oakridge is brand new to Canada and we are so happy to be the first to introduce you to them! Want to find out more about Oakridge and all of their wines? Visit Oakridgewines.ca to shop anywhere in Canada. Falling on the cool climate end of the spectrum for Australian wine regions, the Yarra Valley has earned consistent recognition on an international scale for its ability to produce super premium wines. Sourced from a north-facing vineyard in Coldstream, this wine was created using traditional winemaking techniques that entail whole berry fermentation in open vessels, followed by a 15-month maturation in French oak puncheons. Oakridge's 'Local Vineyard Series' of wines focuses on making single varietal wines from specific areas within the vineyard. They match different grapes to specific sites, based on the terroir. Their expertise in understanding the intricacies of the region allow for perfect match-making! Drink now or cellar several more years. Enjoy at 18C.


How it looks

Dark ruby core with garnet reflections. Hints of purple when swirled in your glass.

How it smells

Plum, cherry and cranberry provide the solid fruit base of the wine. We are compelled by an unique savoury and earthy fruit aroma, like stewed rhubarb or compote. These cool vineyard flavours are really interesting and complex.

How it tastes

Some of the highest-rated shiraz based wines come from Australia and this varietal is known to be one of the darkest, full-bodied red wines in the world. Bold and beautiful, the Oakridge Shiraz is a new-world take on the style, bursting with peppery notes, blackberry, cassis and blueberry. This Local Vineyard Series edition is deep in flavour and well structured.

Recommended food pairing

Unlike the more ripe Shiraz from Barossa or Mclaren Vale, which we usually pair with anything that has grill marks, here we opt for a more elegant pairing. Try a braised lamb, or prime rib roast.
