Description

The Alvi’s Drift Brut Rose is a sparking rose wine from the South-African winery Alvi’s Drift. A blend of Pinot Noir (55%) and Chardonnay (45%). Both grapes come from the southern faced Thornlands vineyards and vinified separately followed by a few months of maturation on the fine lees. The result is a very rich and fresh sparkling wine with aromas of green apple, strawberry and watermelon. The palate is fresh with a delicate mousse and a dry finish. This Brut Rose pairs well with croquets of prawns, ham and sushi.

Alvi’s Drift

Alvi is an abbreviation for Albertus Viljoen, the official first name of the owner of this South-African winery in Worcester. His friends call him Alvi and he’s the third generation following his grandfather in the wine business. Albertus Viljoen van de Merwe was a farmer in Worcester, a 2 hour drive from Capetown. His estate was located on two sides of the river Breede Rivier so he built a drift (African for bridge) in 1928 to get an easy access to both parts. Soon this bridge was called Alvi’s Drift which is now used by Alvi van der Merwe as the name for the wines they produce. The family business owns 420 hectares with vineyards as well as 4000 cows, 200.000 chickens and several citrus and peach orchards. Alvi’s younger brother Johan manages the farm whilst Alvi supervises the winery. The vineyards located in the Breede Rivier valley in the Worcester district contain 19 grape varieties. Together with his team of wine makers Alvi produces a variety of wines with international allure.
