Our vineyards are grown using a philosophy of minimal intervention and fertilised with natural compost produced on the farm. The best blocks of each varietal at Alvi’s Drift are meticulously managed to optimise quality. The chardonnay and pinot noir were hand harvested and vinified separately.
In The Cellar
The free run juice was softly removed from the skins using pneumatic bag presses. The juice was clarified and cold fermented with selected yeast strains to maximize fruit and flavor retention. The wine was aged on lees and battonaged in tank to add fullness and complexity to the palate.
The wine has a lovely pale straw colour. The chardonnay gives the wine aromas of melon and peaches, the pinot noir adds strawberries. There are also hints of orange blossom and Granny Smiths.
The resulting wine is a light, yet complex gem, perfect with salmon, chicken, veal and cream based dishes
