Tasting Notes:

The Oldenburg Syrah 2012 has an opaque crimson colour with flashes of black cherry. Red fruit, ripe plums and cherries describe the nose and hints of white pepper adds a dash of spice. The wood character is understated and shines through as an almond nuttiness, together with light butterscotch. The palate shows a definite muscularity. Firm, youthful tannins surround a mineral core and are punctuated by fleshiness and lively acidity.

We believe that by sharing our farm with the many visitors that arrive, whether for a unique Cellar Door experience or for a stay at the stunningly situated Homestead, we are investing in the guest experience which enables them to connect with the vineyards and better understand our wines.

We strongly believe that the success of our wines will ultimately come from realising the potential that our vineyards and nature have to offer. Also, great wines will ultimately come from optimising each vine's ability to produce grapes with the correct balance of acidity, sugars and physiological ripeness.

Berries are sorted by hand before they are delicately processed. After 3 days of cold soaking the fermenting must is pumped over 3 times daily until fermentation is complete.

The wines are aged for 18 months in French and American oak.
