Red Wine
Pinot Noir

A medium-bodied, garnet colour, structured wine – true to this variety’s character. Its juicy and elegant palate, with gentle tannins, offers a classic aroma of red cherries, spice, a hint of savoury, and a long-lingering, clean sour cherry finish.

HERITAGE

In 1928, our family patriarch, Albertus Viljoen van der Merwe – “Alvi” to his friends – established a farm south of the town of Worcester, South Africa. Alvi’s son, Bertie, started wine production on the family farm and today the award-winning Alvi’s Drift wines are created by winemaker Alvi van der Merwe, Oupa Alvi’s grandson and namesake.

This wine takes its name from Bismarck, our farm’s beloved Great Dane and self-appointed custodian of the cellar. A friendly welcoming party to anyone visiting the farm, Bismarck commanded respect as the undisputed alpha male and leader of the pack. With this wine, we honour his legacy.

Our Albertus Viljoen Icon range showcases full-bodied, barrel-fermented wines of outstanding character and complexity.

ON THE VINES

With an ideal Mediterranean microclimate, an abundance of soils and water from the life-giving Breede River, the Alvi’s Drift winery vineyards are ideally positioned for producing remarkable South African wines of unique character and complexity.

Our vineyards are sustainably fertilised with natural compost produced on our farm. Come harvest time, our grapes are selectively hand harvested in the cool, early morning hours to ensure optimal quality and flavour.

IN THE CELLAR

In the Alvi’s Drift cellar, our winemaking team strongly focuses on achieving a fruit-driven expression of the grapes that go into our award-winning South African wines. Borrowing from ancient winemaking methods, all varieties in this blend were vinified and barrel-matured separately, with some varieties undergoing whole-bunch fermentation.

After arriving at the winery, most grape varieties were destemmed and cold soaked for 3-4 days, with a portion of juice drawn off to maximise skin contact and colour extraction during fermentation. This wine was matured in French and American oak barrels for 12 months, then blended before bottling.
