Olifantsberg Pinotage 2018

Oilfantsberg Pinotage is a delighful red wine to drink with food or on it's own. The addition of 15% Cabernet Sauvignon adds a subtle blackberry character to the sweet spice that comes from the Pinotage. There is a slight hint of oak from the cask ageing but this is done to soften the tannins and it makes this red wine very moorish.

Olifantsberg strive to make wines that reflect their unique location by focussing on hands-on viticulture that yields grapes that demands as little as possible intervention in the cellar. The estate vineyards are mostly dedicated to varieties that they believe can truly thrive under the very harsh conditions they experience. Their unique schist soils, constant winds and elevation combines to produce concentrated fruit that produces elegant, fresh and age-worthy wines.

Vineyard

The vineyards are located on the fertile slopes of the Brandwacht Mountain Range where they endure big diurnal temperature differences and strong winds, at altitudes from 250m to 450 metres above sea level. During the winter the mountain peaks are snow covered, keeping the vines dormant for longer. Cold winters, coupled with the summer winds, ensures the slow ripening of the grapes, helps to maintain healthy vines and contributes freshness and elegance to the wines. The soils in the vineyard comprise a unique schist and slate, which lends structure to the final wine. The Pinotage vines are trellised and are farmed in a sustainable manner.

Winemaking

Natural fermentation took place in open top fermenters, with soft techniques used to extract colour, fruit and tannins. The wine was aged for a further 10 months in French oak foudres and barrels.

Tasting Note

Fresh berry notes are complimented by sweet spice and a well balanced palate.

Serving Suggestion

A versatile wine which accompanies charcuterie, barbecued gourmet sausages or a hearty game pie but also matches dishes with spice: chilli con carne, Indian curry or Cajun-spiced blackened fish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
