The 2023 Reserve Viognier is a radiant, pale gold white wine that captivates with an enticing bouquet of ripe peach, juicy apricot, and tropical fruit aromas, including mango and pineapple. Subtle hints of floral perfume and nuanced oak aging add complexity, with delicate notes of toasted coriander seeds and vanilla. The wine delivers a well-balanced, rounded mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish.

This wine has the potential to age gracefully for up to eight years.

HERITAGE

The wine labels on bottles from our Reserve range feature an illustration of Alvi’s Drift, the low-water bridge over the Breede River cutting through the family farm. Our patriarch, Albertus Viljoen “Oupa Alvi” van der Merwe, was instrumental in having this bridge built back in 1930.

Oupa Alvi’s son Bertie started wine production on the family farm and today Bertie’s son, Alvi’s Drift winemaker Alvi van der Merwe produces the winery’s award-winning South African wines, enjoyed by wine lovers around the globe.

Our Alvi’s Drift Reserve range is the culmination of our pursuit of excellence in producing outstanding wines of unrivalled complexity.

ON THE VINES

With one of the largest Viognier plantations in our country, our winery has become synonymous with exceptional South African Viognier.

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

IN THE CELLAR

Optimally ripe grapes, hand-picked in the cool early morning hours are pressed, with preference given to free-run juice. Thereafter, wild-yeast fermentation is started in a combination of cement and stainless-steel tanks.

Fermentation is then completed in 100% French oak barrels, lending a beautiful complexity to the final product.
