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 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.
