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 2018 were harvested on 27 February 2018 at 23.6° Balling. Sorted carefully by hand, and cold-soaked for three days before fermentation was initiated. Pump overs were performed up to three times daily. Wines were matured for 18 months in 300-litre French oak barrels, with 14% new oak. A total of 4,354 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A bouquet of pine forest, macerated berries, jasmine and green peppercorns on the nose.

Palate: The palate displays a unique integration of vanilla pods and dark chocolate, followed by red cherries, loganberries and peppadew.

Finish: The wine is rounded off with the typical tomato leaf finish that is characteristic of our Merlot.
