'Elizma Visser brings a light and sensitive touch to her Grenache Noir, using 20% whole bunches, but resisting the temptation to extract too much from the grapes. Stony, fresh and spicy, it has a core of raspberry and red cherry sweetness and gentle, shimmering tannins. Drink 2022-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'Lots of dried herbs, leather, and bramble fruits wrapped up in soft, silky tannins and a plump, showy finish.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 92/100 (Silver)

'Bright-fruited 2019 confirms this wine’s promotion to the A league in 2018. Succulent, with a gentle spiciness, it’s supported by a light platform of oak. Vivacious, with good concentration & peppery farewell. Naturally fermented, as most of these, portion in barrel, like next.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (91/100)

Producer information Olifantsberg is located in the Brandwacht Mountain Range overlooking the Breedekloof valley. This location experiences dramatic temperature differences within a day and the summer and winter climates help to ensure slow ripening of the grapes which in turn contribute to fresh and elegant wines. The winemaker, Elizma Visser, joined Olifantsberg in 2015 and is focused on following a natural, sustainable farming approach. Simple techniques are used in the winemaking, traditional oak casks and foudres are used, and where possible the grapes are naturally fermented which aids in a lower alcohol and sulphur content in the wines.
