Oakridge 864 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

97 POINTS - HUON HOOKE! 

The 864 Range showcase micro-selections of fruit from Oakridge's most exceptional single vineyards in the Yarra Valley.

 

"Medium to deep red/purple colour with a bright, fresh, clean cabernet aroma of sweet cassis and background cedar. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with restrained but glorious flavour, and is slightly closed. It has a tight, firm palate, but reveals more and more blackberry, blackcurrant cabernet character as it airs in the glass. It’s elegant and texturally refined. A beautiful cabernet with a big future. It demands patience." - Huon Hooke

 

"Bright, dark purple red. Classic cabernet nose of cassis and blackberry underpinned with varietal leaf notes, earth and cigar box nuance. Unmistakable, fresh and bright. To taste, it is polished and proportioned. Even, filigreed, lacy tannin right across the palate from start to finish displaying blackcurrant, briar and tobacco leaf. The plummy richness contrasted by the raspberry like freshness. Line and length. Delicious, fragrant medium bodied and supple." - Oakridge
