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.


Vintage
2018 was characterised by very warm and dry weather. Unfortunately the droughtlike conditions significantly affected the yields and the crops harvested were lower
this year than usual. However the hot weather reduced disease pressure and as a
result the fruit harvested was very healthy and shows intensely concentrated flavours.


Vineyard
The grapes were grown in unique sites from older vines which have an average age
of 37 years. The vines are grown by a passionate grower who shares the Olifantsberg
philosophy and uses sustainable viticulture.


Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested and cooled overnight. Bunch sorting took place to
ensure only the best grapes were vinified. Fermentation took place in a combination
of vessels: 2,000 litre French oak foudres, seasoned barrels and stainless steel tanks.
Each vessel resulted in a different expression of Chenin Blanc, imparting a layered
dimension to the wine. The wine was aged for nine months on the lees in French
oak, which contributed to the complexity and texture of the wine.


Tasting Note
A refined Chenin Blanc showing aromas of crisp green apples, white pear and
delicate pineapple layered with subtle oak nuances. Rich and full, with a good
depth of fruit and a refreshing feel to balance the rich and creamy palate.
