OLDENBURG Chardonnay 2021 TASTING NOTES
Conditions in the Banghoek Valley are exceptionally favourable for Chardonnay,
as is reflected in this superb vintage. The wine displays a golden hue in the glass.
On the nose, a flintiness is detectable among inviting aromas of peaches, honey
melon, apricots and freshly baked brioche. The palate complements the aromas
with exceptionally vibrant quince, papaya, ginger and loquat. Vibrant acidity and
an exceptional mouth-feel gives a long and satisfying finish.

WINEMAKING / MATURATION
The grapes were picked 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 L French oak barrels. Natural fermentation 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.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS
The 2021 season brought another exceptional harvest. The winter saw good
rainfall – only slightly less compared to the previous year. Springtime conditions
were ideal, leading to even bud-break and homogenous shoot growth. The
summer ripening period was consistent and moderate, and without heat spikes,
bringing about uniform flavour development and phenolic ripeness in the grapes
