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 vineyards are located on the fertile slopes of the Olifantsberg Mountain Range
where they endure large 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, ensure the slow ripening of the grapes, which helps
to maintain healthy vines and contributes freshness and elegance to the wines. The
soils in the vineyard comprise a shale and slate, which lends structure to the resulting
wine. The vineyards are farmed in a sustainable manner, helping to maintain the
biodiversity within the vineyards and soils. The vines are trained “sur echalas”, a bush
vine supported by a wooden vertical support; which helps to produce more
concentrated fruit on the lower potential soils in these mountainous vineyard sites.

Winemaking
The grapes were whole bunch pressed to ensure an elegant extraction of colour,
aromas and flavours. Natural fermentation took place in seasoned French oak
barrels and large oak foudres which added layers of complexity. The wine was aged
for 10 months on its fine lees, adding texture and richness.

Tasting Note
A unique style of Grenache Blanc which shows delicacy and finesse. Subtle aromas
of lime blossom combine with green herbal notes, white peach and quince through
to a beautifully balanced and richly textured palate with a saline hint on the finish.
