A challenging season led to a smaller – but exceptional – wine grape harvest at Oldenburg Vineyards, despite the second consecutive very dry season. These challenging conditions produced healthy and high quality grapes which produced wines of exceptional quality. Due to the dry conditions, smaller grape berries were produced, leading to an increase in colour and flavour intensity of the wines.
WINEMAKING / MATURATION
Grapes were harvested and sorted carefully by hand, and cold-soaked for 3 days before fermentation was initiated. Pump overs were performed three times daily. Wines were matured for 18 months in 300L French oak barrels of which 43% were new.
