Signature Shiraz

Red Wine
100% Shiraz

With its youthful ruby hue, this medium-bodied red wine boasts rich and intense aromas of ripe, dark fruit such as plums and mulberries, with notes of pepper, savoury spice, eucalyptus and sweet vanilla. Fresh acidity and modest tannin, beautifully integrated with fruit gives this succulent wine a subtlety and elegance rarely found in New World wines.

SERVING SUGGESTION

Ideal for enjoying with any red meat, this wine pairs well with mushroom risotto, or pasta dishes served with ham-and-mushroom sauce. It will also complement hard cheeses such as Huguenot, or mature gouda and cheddar cheese.

HERITAGE

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!”.

ON THE VINES

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 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. Once delivered to our cellar, hand-harvested Shiraz grapes are crushed before being transferred to fermentation tanks where they are left to ferment for approximately seven days. 

Juice is drawn off on skins to enhance the wine’s colour and flavour intensity, after which the wine is selectively matured in American oak for up to eight months prior to bottling.

"Discovered a bottle at Pick n Pay and had to try it. I can completely understand why it is rated as a Top-12 Shiraz – absolutely premium quality!"
