10 stellar South African Chenins

6. Olifantsberg Chenin Blanc

Olifantsberg makes some lovely, elegant wines. They’re based in the Breedekloof in the Western Cape and their rich yet racy Chenin is made using grapes sourced from “like-minded farmers who share our love for Chenin Blanc”. These are mainly older bush vines.

Vinification-wise, it’s natural fermentation in a 5,000L French oak cask, 2000L French oak foudres, seasoned barriques and stainless steel tanks – with the aim of creating a varied palette of the Chenin Blanc fruit. The wine was aged for nine months on the lees, contributing to the freshness and richness of the wine.
