The Oldenburg Vineyards Series is a true expression of terroir through a range of single cultivar wines and the confluence of the 8 natural elements that determine the unique terroir is explored through these wines. The 8 elements are depicted on the intricate Oldenburg Vineyards Series label design. Grapes for the Chenin Blanc 2020 were hand-picked between 20-22 February 2020 from a 14 year old single vineyard, planted on alluvial soils, at 320m above sea level. Bunches were sorted by hand and whole-bunch pressed in a pneumatic press on a gentle champagne cycle. The juice was settled overnight and then racked to old 300-litre French oak barrels, concrete eggs and a new 2,500-litre Austrian oak foudre. Spontaneous fermentation was completed within 2-3 weeks. Partial malolactic conversion was done on some of the batches. Matured for 11 months in oak, gently fined and filtered before bottling. A total of 18,498 bottles were produced. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Peaches and cream, honey-melon, mangoes and pineapple.

Palate: The palate shows ripe pears, banana and star jasmine, accompanied by an elegant hint of vanilla and popcorn. The mouth-feel is sublime, the acidity is zesty, and the fruit is incredibly balanced.

Finish: Lovely notes of honey, baking spices and a nutty character linger on the finish.
