'Focused, streamlined 2019 offers complexity & harmony of fruit & wood. Marmalade twist seguing to oak creaminess on a textured, lively palate, aided by dab skin-fermented grenache blanc. Rich, with impressive concentration & length, yet poised, elegant, 13% alcohol in sync.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'It's worth trading up from the (very good) entry-point Chenin Blanc to this whole bunch pressed release from Elizma Visser. Fermented and aged in foudres and larger barrels, this is focused, complex and intense, with nuances of stone fruit sweetness, a hint of oak and a long, stony, struck match finish. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'A beautiful expression of our terroir this wine displays good balance of fresh stone fruit and bright citrus notes with a fleshy textured palate and engaging length. An elegant and refined style of Chenin Blanc.' – Elizma Visser, Winemaker

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.
