Grapes for the Olifantsberg Lark Chenin Blanc 2018 come from a 12 year old trellised vineyard on the lower part of the farm. The soil is mainly sandstone layered with a clay-shale which adds a unique element to this heritage varietal. Grapes are whole bunch pressed to ensure elegant extraction. Natural fermentation took place in 500-litre French (5% new) and Hungarian (5% new) oak barrels. Part of the wine was also fermented in a French oak foudre (2000-litre). The wine was aged for 10 months on the lees contributing to the richness and texture of the wine. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A floral fragrant wine, with crushed stones, blanched cinnamon and an enticing nectarine and flinty focus.

Palate: The full, layered palate is balanced by a vibrant acidity and flavours of yellow grapefruit and hints of aromatic spice.

Finish: Medium length with notes of tinned fruit salad, a hint of salinity and refreshing acidity.
