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 Grenache Noir 2020 were harvested on 6 February 2020 at 23° Balling from 13-year-old bush vines on granitic soil at 410m above sea level. Bunches and berries were meticulously sorted. 1/3rd whole bunch and 2/3rd whole berry fermentation. Wild fermented in a stainless steel tank with punch-downs and pump-overs 1-2 times per day. The wine was basket pressed and malolactic fermentation took place in barrels of which only 6 were made. The wine was then matured for 16 months in old 300-litre French oak barrels. A total of 2,482 bottles were produced. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Intricate aromas of raspberries, fennel, red cherries and rose petals are found in abundance.

Palate: On the palate a plethora of flavours in the form of bun spice, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg are found. The mouth-feel is generous, with a zesty, mouth-watering acidity and a soft powdery tannin.

Finish: A beautiful blood orange finish.
