Olifantsberg Breedekloof Grenache Blanc 2016
Lime blossom with green herbal notes, white peach and quince on the nose, which flow into a beautifully balanced and richly textured palate.
Olifantsberg's Breedekloof's Grenache Blanc is a beautifully layered Rhone style white. Olifantsberg Breedekloof's Blanc is crafted using sustainable farming and winemaking practices, with limited intervention in the vineyard and cellar to allow the estate's high altitude terroir produce concentrated fruit that results in elegant, fresh wines. The 2016 vintage was one of South Africa's best years for white wines; where the warm, dry vintage produced small, ripe berries with concentrated flavours. It was aged on its lees in oak, with some batonnage contributing to the freshness and complexity of the wine.
