Olifantsberg Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2018
The nose shows hints of crisp green apples, white pear and lingering pineapple with subtle oak notes. Rich and full with coated acidity and good depth of fruit. A characterful drinking experience.

Brand Group Olifantsberg
Other A 37-year-old bush vine vineyard located in the Breedekloof. The grapes are grown on alluvial soils, using sustainable practices, by a passionate grower who shares our winemaking philosophy.

All the grapes are hand harvested and cooled down overnight in a temperature controlled cold room. Bunch sorting takes place in order to select only the best grapes. Fermentation takes place in French oak 2000 litre foudres, season barrels and a stainless steel tank. Each vessel resulted in a different expression of Chenin
Blanc, imparting a layered dimension to the wine. The wine was aged on its full lees nine months to add to the complexity and mouthfeel.
