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 Merlot 2017 were harvested on 23 February 2017 at 23.7┬░ Balling. Sorted carefully by hand, and cold-soaked for three days before fermentation was initiated. Pump overs were performed three times daily. Wines were matured for 19 months in 300-litre French oak barrels, with 15% new oak. 6,177 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Initially, the nose is quite shy, but soon opens up with aromas of juniper, loganberries, fynbos and paprika. 

Palate: A bold palate of cloves, pine nuts, cassis and blackberries.

Finish: Fine tannins with a lingering finish of sweet spices.
