Signature Viognier

White Wine
100% Viognier

This glowing, pale straw-coloured wine boasts intense aromas of apricots, with hints of rose petals. With lingering flavours of apricot and sun-drenched peach, this wine has a well-rounded mouthfeel with a medium body that gently brings the fruit to rest in the mouth. Truly a white wine for red wine lovers.

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 preserving the fruit-driven expression of the grapes that go into our award-winning South African wines.

Only premium free-run juice was used to create this unwooded, fruit-driven wine. To ensure maximum flavour retention, depth of palate and a beautiful mouthfeel, clarified juice was cold fermented and left on lees for several months before fining and stabilisation.

"Viogniers are a tricky varietal and I’ve been bitterly disappointed in the past by the more reasonably priced wines in this varietal. I honestly bought the wine to cook with and decided to have a taste before throwing it into a chicken dish I was preparing. Needless to say, not much of the wine was shared with the chicken! I am not a connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination, but I definitely picked up cashew nut on the palate."
