Oldenburg Vineyards is an independent family run boutique winery aiming to make some of the finest and most respected wines.
Due to some heritage, careful planning, and a large amount of good fortune we are the custodians of a small corner of Stellenbosch, tucked away in the mountains in an area known as Banghoek. We believe we have some of the finest terroir in South Africa, with some magnificent views, and a truly unique and beautiful setting.
To the eye the Merlot 2012 shows a translucent, red cherry hue. Plum, prune and blackcurrant notes define the nose. The oak wood is discernible as lightly toasted almonds. Ripe, red fruit introduces the palate. Mint and plum flavours add further complexity. The tannins are mild and support an elegant palate.
