Deep garnet red in colour. A fresh core and mouth-watering acidity. Racy and focused yet with lovely, sweet red and black fruit density to match, it is peppered with fresh tobacco, crushed rocks, vanilla pod, cedar and blackcurrant leaf. The smooth tannins give structure to the sumptuous cassis fruit while the vibrant acidity keeps it nimble and elegant on the finish.

Oldenburg Vineyards is located in the Banghoek Valley situated in the mountains above Stellenbosch. If one had to find a single word that best describes our overall philosophy it would be balance. We realise that we are very fortunate with our terroir and know that we need to work in balance with nature as it is central to who, what, and where we are. Balance in the vineyard is essential to capture the best nature has to offer and equally we strive to make wines with great balance, complexity and elegance. We strongly believe that the success of our wines will ultimately come from realising the potential that our vineyards and nature have to offer. Also, great wines will ultimately come from optimising each vine's ability to produce grapes with the correct balance of acidity, sugars and physiological ripeness. One of our core beliefs is that wine is an encapsulation of what nature does best. We believe that by working closely with nature we can ensure a consistent high standard of quality. This must be done with sustainability in mind. Our terroir provides a unique combination of geography, climate and soil types. They conspire with carefully selected varietals and clones to produce superb quality grapes. We believe that it is this unique complexity of natural variables which creates exceptional fruit. Simon Thompson, our estate and vineyard manager, use this magnificent terroir to deliver grapes of outstanding quality and set the perfect base for producing outstanding and exciting wines.
