The grapes were grown in unique sites from older vines which have an average age of 37 years. The vines are grown by a passionate grower who shares the Olifantsberg philosophy and uses sustainable viticulture.

The grapes were hand-harvested and cooled overnight. Bunch sorting took place to ensure only the best grapes were vinified. Fermentation took place in a combination of vessels: 2,000 litre French oak foudres, seasoned barrels and stainless steel tanks. Each vessel resulted in a different expression of Chenin Blanc, imparting a layered dimension to the wine. The wine was aged for nine months on the lees in French oak, which contributed to the complexity and texture of the wine.
