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 Chardonnay 2022 were harvested 14 to 22 February 2022 at 22.6° Balling, hand-picked in the cool hours of the morning from cool climate vineyards. 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 228-litre French oak barrels for spontaneous fermentation. The wild yeast fermentation took 2 months to complete. Partial malolactic conversion was done on some of the batches. The wine was matured for 11 months in barrel, gently fined and filtered before bottling. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Opulent nose with vibrant tropical and floral notes. Aromas of loquat, nectarines, apricot, white peaches and a slight touch of lime invite you to take a sip. As it opens up subtle whiffs of toasted almonds and vanilla come through.

Palate: Fruit forward entry with notes of white peach, apricot and lime shining through. Mid-palate has a creamy rich density to it, with a lovely rich buttery texture.

Finish: A lovely refreshing acidity balances out the richness. Lingering aromas of honeycomb, almonds and lemon zest delightfully tickle the palate.
