<CL is the concept range in the Oldenburg Vineyards stable. For us, the <CL range represents a key part of our story: that we are cooler than Stellenbosch (in terms of climate). There are eight natural elements that make our corner of the Banghoek Valley a special place to make wine, and three of these elements (the mountain ranges, the elevation and the winds) influence the coolness of our valley. This cooler climate elevates the quality of our grapes and wine significantly, through slower and more even ripening. Cooler climate, cooler wines.
The <CL White Blend has a gorgeous and inviting colour in the glass. On the nose stone fruit immediately reigns supreme with white peaches, and apricot. Along with layers of passionfruit, guava and gooseberry this wine showcases an array of spectacular aromas. The palate displays a zesty acidity balanced out by a slight creamy and buttery texture. A plentiful finish of citrus, green apple as well as honeysuckle round off a fabulous wine that is simply meant to be enjoyed.
