Description

Albertus Viljoen Red Blend

The Grapes:
The wine is made entirely from estate grown fruit, hand selected in the early
morning to ensure only cool, perfect bunches are delivered to the winery. Maturity
reached optimum levels of ripeness at approximately 25° balling.
In The Cellar:
The wine was crushed into traditional open fermenters for fermentation.
Juice was bled from the skins to improve the colour and total phenol
levels in the wine. Once fermentation commenced the cap was punched
through by hand up to 8 times per day. After fermentation the wine was
matured for 22 months in a combination of French and American Oak
barrels of which a third were new.
The Wine:
Albertus Viljoen is Alvi’s Drift flagship red blend. Named after our
charismatic founder, Albertus Viljoen van der Merwe was a fine athlete
and represented South Africa as a Springbok rugby player. He was the
first man to score a try against the All Blacks on South African soil.
The Wine:
The wine is a blend of 50% shiraz, 21.5% cabernet sauvignon, 21.5%
pinotage and 7% petite verdot. This is an elegant but full bodied wine,
exhibiting plenty of spicy shiraz pepper fruit and ripe dark fruit characters.
Awards:

  • Gold Medal Award for the Catavinum World Wine & Spirits
  • Competition 2016
  • Top three Shiraz based blends at the 2016 Shiraz SA awards
  • Double Gold Award in the Top 100 SA Wines 2016
