Oldenburg Grenache Noir 2019

Oldenburg Grenache Noir 2019

This stunning Grenache rolls on to the palate like a warm summer morning. An intricate display of strawberries, marzipan, fennel and raspberries showcase an abundant bouquet. The palate shows a delectable pithy blood-orange characteristic, matched by candy, jasmine and a slight hint of vanilla. The acidity is mouth-watering and lends itself to a spectacular finish in combination with the gentle, yet structured tannins. A truly beautiful wine in its elegance that will continue to develop its structure and layers within the next 3-5 years.

At Oldenburg Vineyards, we believe that great wines can only come from the best quality grapes. Our intervention in the vineyards is minimal, to reflect the full potential of our mountain terroir. The Oldenburg Vineyards Series is a true expression of terroir through our range of single cultivar wines. The confluence of the 8 Natural Elements that determine our unique terroir is explored through these wines and their real sense of place. The 8 elements are depicted on the intricate Oldenburg Vineyards Series label design. Wines made in an uncompromising manner, intending to showcase the finest characteristics of each cultivar.

in the vineyard : While winter had a late start, it was characterized by good rainfall, leading to an even bud break. A turbulent start to flowering season improved towards the onset of summer. Warmer weather in November contributed to even vineyard growth. A moderate January and February was followed by an initially hot February, while cool and wet conditions dominated from the end of February through March, creating challenging harvest conditions. Despite the wetter than ideal conditions, our microclimate allowed the grapes to achieve ideal ripeness.

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested and sorted carefully by hand.
Harvested: 13 February 2019 at 24.5° Balling

in the cellar : Grapes were picked by hand from 12 year old bush vines on granitic soil at 410m above sea level. Bunches and berries were meticulously sorted. 1/3rd whole bunch and 2/3rd whole berry fermentation. Wild fermented in a stainless steel tank with punch-downs and pump-overs 1-2 times per day. The wine was basket pressed and malolactic fermentation took place in barrels of which only 5 were made. The wine was then matured for 11 months in old 300l French oak barrels.
