Olifants River

Olifants River is the northern, Atlantic-influenced extension of this part of the Cape, transforming the waters of the Olifants River into bulk and distilling wine and some crisp dry whites such as those exported, with surprising success, under the Gôiya, Namaqua and Rain Dance labels (among others) by the Namaqua Wines co-operative, South Africa's largest winery. Fryer’s Cove in the small, northerly Bamboes Bay subregion produces some surprisingly fine Sauvignon Blanc.

In a nutshell

Enclaves of quality.
