Tasting notes:
'Leashed power on improved 2018. Creamy vanilla & stonefruit succulence from natural & inoculated ferment in French & Hungarian oak. Textured, rich, balanced, structured & dry yet simultaneously fresh & svelte. Just 10% new oak used, less than 2017 (4 stars, 89 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'This is only the second vintage of Lark, showing more freshness than the 2017 but the same level of concentration. Aged in foudres with just 5% new wood, it's fresh, appley and creamy with brightness, complexity and vivid acidity. Drink 2019-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100

'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.' – Winemaker

About Olifantsberg Family Vineyards:
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.
