Producer Note
Olifantsberg is passionate about producing authentic wines with a true sense of
place, which reflect the unique location of their vineyard. The focus is on sustainable
farming and winemaking practices, resulting in limited intervention in the both the
vineyard and cellar. The team are fully committed to understanding their terroir and
managing their natural resources through conservation, which adds to the
singularity of their wines. The unique terroir with its combination of Breede-shale,
Renosterveld and sandstone soils, constant winds and elevation, produces
concentrated fruit that results in elegant, fresh and age-worthy wines.


Vineyard
The vineyard is located on the fertile slopes of the Olifantsberg Mountain Range
where it endures wide diurnal temperature differences and strong winds, at altitudes
from 250 to 450 metres above sea level. During the winter the mountain peaks are
snow covered, keeping the vines dormant for longer. Cold winters, coupled with the
summer winds, ensures the slow ripening of the grapes; helps to maintain healthy
vines; and contributes freshness and elegance to the wines. The soils in the vineyard
comprise a unique sandy shale with a clay subsoil, which lends structure to the
resulting wine. The Pinotage trellised vines are 11 years old and are farmed in a
sustainable manner.


Winemaking
Whole berries were naturally fermented in open top fermenters, with soft techniques
used to extract colour, fruit and tannins. The wine was aged for a further 10 months
in French oak foudres and barrels to add complexity.


Tasting Note
Bright notes of cherry, wild strawberry fruit and ripe raspberry are interlaced by hints
of spice and earthy notes. This wine is made in a pure fruit-driven style, with supple
tannins and reveals a fresh and elegant expression of Pinotage.
