At Oldenburg Vineyards, we believe that great wines can only come from the best quality grapes. Our intervention in the vineyards is minimal, to reflect the full potential of our mountain terroir. The Oldenburg Vineyards Series is a true expression of terroir through our range of single cultivar wines. The confluence of the 8 Natural Elements that determine our unique terroir is explored through these wines and their real sense of place. The 8 elements are depicted on the intricate Oldenburg Vineyards Series label design. Wines made in an uncompromising manner, intending to showcase the finest characteristics of each cultivar.

in the vineyard : A challenging season led to a smaller but exceptional wine grape harvest at Oldenburg Vineyards despite the second consecutive very dry season. However, these challenging conditions led to healthy and high quality grapes which produced wines of exceptional quality. Due to the dry conditions, smaller grape berries were produced, yet these led to better colour and flavour intensity.

about the harvest: Harvested: 08th February 2017 at 23.2° Balling.
Grapes were picked by hand.

in the cellar : Grapes were picked by hand and bunches and berries were meticulously sorted. Crushing and destemming was handled delicately. The juice was 100% barrel fermented. Wines were then matured in Hungarian oak, of which 33% was new oak.
