Star bright with lime-green tinges, this elegant wine has an attractive, fresh-pineapple nose interspersed with layers of lime. A well-rounded, refreshing palate offers a great balance of crisp acidity and ripe fruit, while a lingering finish ends off with hints of lemon.

Alvi's Drift winery takes its name from the low-water bridge over the Breede River which cuts through the family farm. 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.
The wines in our Signature range are true to our winery’s trademark, fruit-driven style. These outstanding wines offer wine lovers exceptional value – in the words of Alvi’s Drift winemaker, Alvi van der Merwe, “think ‘great’, for the price of good!”.
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 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 Alvi’s Drift cellar, our winemaking team strongly focuses on preserving the fruit-driven expression of the grapes that go into our award-winning South African wines.
For this wine, only premium free-run juice was used. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, wine was left on lees for several months before being fined, stabilised and bottled.
