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 winemaker Elizma
Visser translates into elegant, fresh and age-worthy wines. In Tim Atkin’s 2021 South
Africa Report, Elizma was awarded the prestigious Young Winemaker of the Year
Award.
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.
