Rondekop by Oldenburg Stone Axe Syrah 2016
This is an immensely well-structured wine – opulent and lush, quite big, with refined elegance
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. Several stone axes have been found on Rondekop itself. These stone axes are from an early Stone Age, estimated to be at least 100,000 years old. Knowing that early humans lived and hunted on Rondekop adds to the mystical nature of the valley
Opulent, ripe fruit reminiscent of a variety of berries best describes the nose, with a delicate hint of lemongrass. The wood presents itself as an aroma of lightly toasted almonds. Rich, incredibly luscious palate with supple, already soft tannins.
