Campbell Mattinson

(2017 vintage) "Oakridge chardonnay, across the range, is as reliable as the summer is long. This is a good drink, full stop. It’s fresh, lively, just-flavoured-enough and just-textured-enough. Stonefruits, citrus and spice. Fresh chardonnay flavour all the way through the mouth."

Huon Hooke

(2017 vintage) "Smoky straw and subtle malt nuances on the bouquet. The palate is lean and tight, light to medium-bodied and fairly straightforward, but not simple, and a very pleasant ready-drinking style"
