Olifantsberg Grenache Blanc 2016





The grapes are whole bunch pressed to ensure elegant extraction. Natural fermentation took place in seasoned French oak barrels & a foudre, adding layers of complexity. The wine was aged for 10 months on the lees contributing to the freshness and richness of the wine.

Tasting note

A unique style of Grenache Blanc with a lot of finesse. Subtle lime blossoms and green herbal notes along with white peach and quince followed through by a richly textured pallet and balanced acidity.

Source of grapes

The vines are grown using the echalas system on shale/granite soils (aged 4-6yrs).
