We believe that Oldenburg is a place of extraordinary peace and beauty. A common reaction by most arriving here for the first time is one of awe followed by the words, "I never knew such a stunning place existed". With wines now in production we hope to be able to allow many more to discover the place that we believe is the "Gem of Stellenbosch"

The guiding principle is to let the grapes lead the way and ultimately create wines with balanced tannins, complexity, natural acidity and elegant fruit flavours.

The berries are sorted by hand before being delicately crushed and destemmed. Pump overs take place three times a day after a period of cold- soaking which lasts three days.

The wines are ages for 19 months in 300L French Oak barrels, 40% of which are new.

Food pairing

Chilled Merlot served with a ham hock terrine, pea veloute, pea salad & truffle oil.
