Wine information
Oldenburg Vineyards lies in an elevated area of outstanding beauty, Banghoek Valley, which means "scary corner" due to the roaming leopards. Only 8 kilometres from Stellenbosch on the road to Franschhoek, you will find their vineyards surrounded by a spectacular mountain amphitheatre. At the heart of the farm lies Rondekop – their iconic, round hill which influences the vineyards planted on and around it. In 2003 current owner and entrepreneur, Adrian Vanderspuy, acquired Oldenburg from his grandmother. He began analysing the terroir and climate before replanting the vines, giving the estate a new life. The result is nothing short of spectacular. A poised Chardonnay, this 2018 offers notes of plump melon and crisp apples with subtle tones of sweet churned butter. Balanced, lifted and fresh.

Robin says "Though they produce a number of excellent wines, Oldenburg feels that Chardonnay is their "starlet" white variety. Based on the balance and freshness of the 2018, it is easy to understand why. A pretty, refined wine."
