Oldenburg 2017 is a classic, buttery Chardonnay from the Stellenbosch wine region. Full-bodied, smooth and buttery on the palate with ripe red apple, smoky nut and apple pie spice flavours on the palate. Just a yummy Chardonnay with good acidity for food. Enjoy for the next three to five years. Pair with lobster bisque.

Chardonnay food pairings: grilled fish, spinach and pepper jack stuffed chicken, beef bourguignon, toasted ravioli with Alfredo sauce, Asian dishes with black bean sauces.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Love this butterscotchy Chardonnay from the Stellenbosch Wine Region. Oldenburg 2017 is peachy and soft orange citrus on the nose. Lovely full-bodied Chardonnay with ripe peach, clementine, nutty, buttery flavours on the palate. Great acidity for food. Well-balanced, finishing long with buttered toffee flavours. Enjoy now and for the next five years. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
