Looking for an enjoyable Yarra Pinot for $30? This Oakridge Pinot Noir 2021 will sort you out.
The typically smart blue label entry point for the Oakridge range (so the next step above the Over The Shoulder) and this is Yarra Pinot, with whole bunches and whole berries in the ferment, and 9 months in barrel. It has lots of the charisma of its bigger bros too – red pastilles, pronounced acidity, a little oak lift. Proper Pinosity, even if its a bit light and diffuse, and worth the dollars.
Best drinking: good now. 17.5/20, 91/100. 13.2%, $30. Oakridge website. Would I buy it? Sure would.
