James' Review

This is the busman's holiday for Oakridge chief winemaker David Bicknell and partner Nicky Harris (former viticulturist). It is focused purely on chardonnay and pinot noir, with no present intention of broadening the range; nor, indeed, the volume of production. Since '14 all the grapes have come from Val Stewart's close-planted vineyard at Gladysdale, planted in 1988. The partners have leased this vineyard, which will become the total focus of their business. From 2015 the wines will be labelled Applecross, the name of the highest mountain pass in Scotland, a place that David Bicknell's father was very fond of.
