Oldenburg Vineyards Rhodium 2010

Attractive crimson hues are indicative of youth and inviting to the eye. Forthcoming aromas of sun-dried tomato pesto, pencil shavings, herbs and bright red berries are evident on the nose. The entry is dry with ripe, integrated tannins which add structure to the palate, packed with flavours of blueberries and fresh herbs. Integrated oak spice allows the fruit to take centre stage, and the wine is beautifully balanced overall.

in the vineyard : Rhodium is a very rare metal. South Africa produces most of the world's production. It is used in premium jewellery and as a catalyst for processes which are essentially sustainable. Rhodium embodies the attributes of this wine: it’s South African origin, very low production and premium orientation.
