Oldenburg Chardonnay 2022


Region: Banghoek

Tasting note:

The nose is incredibly inviting; ripe apricots, naartjie, quince and loquat aromas are in abundance. The touch of oak is well integrated, with a light vanilla and slightly smoky characteristics floating at the edge of perception.

“A recent bottle of Chardonnay 2022, however, suggested that winemaker Nic van Aarde, who joined in November 2018 having previously worked at Warwick, is settling in just fine. Matured for 11 months in 228-litre barrels of which 29% were new, the nose shows struck-match, citrus, peach, vanilla and spice while the palate has succulent, sweet fruit offset by fresh acidity before a dry finish (alc: 13.56%). Creamy in texture with plenty of detail. – CE
