Oldenburg Vineyards is situated in a hanging valley with an elevation ranging from 300m to 410m, which creates a naturally cooler site. The mountain amphitheater that surrounds it plays an important role in bringing cooler air into the vineyards after sunset as cool air from the mountaintops, circa 1600m falls into our valley. This situation lends itself to a wider diurnal range (day/night temperature differential), which contributes to grape complexity.
The wine has a dark crimson colour. Ripe cherries and vanilla oak announce themselves first, with caramel and savoury, red meat notes following in their wake. On the palate you will find dark chocolate with cumin flavours adding to the complexity. The wine has a firm, muscular structure and promises great ageability.
Pair this wine with a flavour-rich dish such as a lamb curry.
