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 Cabernet Franc 2015 were harvested on 19 February 2015 at 26° Balling. Bunches and berries were sorted carefully by hand, with crushing and destemming delicately handled. Grapes were cold-soaked for three days prior to fermentation. Wines were matured for 19 months in 300-litre French oak barrels, 25% new oak, 38% 3rd-fill barrels, 20% 4th-fill barrels and 17% 5th-fill barrels. 6,809 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: The wood influence presents itself as light, delicate almond notes. Ripe cherry and fruit aromas on the nose, as well as distinctive green bell pepper.

Palate: The wine is ripe and succulent, filled with notes of plums, blackberry, raspberry. Mid-palate reveals more liquorice, violets and some sweet spices like cloves.

Finish: Opulent and long finish with ripe well integrated tannins. Lingering notes of cedar oak, dried herbs and a hint of pencil shavings.
