Rondekop by Oldenburg Rhodium 2015
An exquisite blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc resulting in well-integrated tannins, luscious fruit and a smooth palate
The Rondekop Series wines represent a small selection of the best barrels – either single cultivar or a blend – from Oldenburg’s iconic Rondekop hill. Oldenburg believe there are 8 Natural Elements which uniquely impact their vineyards, creating excellent wine producing conditions. At the centre of it all is their perfectly round hill, Rondekop: the 8th natural element. 80% of all Rhodium is mined in South Africa. Oldenburg’s proprietor – Adrian Vanderspuy – has long been interested and involved in precious metals. To his mind, there is no better analogy for the incredible potential of South African wines – and specifically the wines of Rondekop.
Blackcurrants, raspberries and wood on the nose. A smooth, seamless palate, laden with berry fruits. The Cabernet Franc component brings acidity and balance to the lush, luxurious Merlot. A firm structure of fine, well-integrated tannins surround the luscious, opulent core.
