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 2020 were harvested on 26 February 2020 at 23.3° Balling from two blocks planted on alluvial soil and weathered table mountain sandstone. Bunches were hand-sorted and whole bunch pressed in a pneumatic press, on a gentle Champagne cycle. Juice settled overnight before being racked to 228-litre French oak barrels. Natural fermentation was completed within 2 months, and partial malolactic conversion allowed on some barrels. After maturing for 10 months, the wine was gently fined and filtered before bottling. A total of 14,540 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: On the nose, a flintiness is detectable among inviting aromas of peaches, honey melon, apricots and freshly baked brioche.

Palate: The palate complements the aromas with exceptionally vibrant quince, papaya, ginger and loquat.

Finish: Vibrant acidity and an exceptional mouth-feel gives a long and satisfying finish.
