Alvi’s Drift Rondebosch Chenin Blanc

The wine has a pale straw colour and is star bright. A fresh, inviting fruity nose, with aromas of peach, apricot and orange peel. A gentle hint of honey weaves through the fruit on a well rounded, silky palate. The zippy acids and beautiful lingering citrus fruit give a refreshing finish.

REGION
The Worcester wine region is South Africa`s largest and highest producing region, it is located 100km or a one and a half hours drive east of cape town. The district is sheltered by mountain ranges on every side creating a rain shadow that causes the area to be particularly hot and dry meaning irrigation is essential here, locals source this water from the nearby Brandvlei Dam. There are varying styles in the district due to the topographical variations, most grapes are grown in the gently rolling, more fertile valley floor, where the higher quality grapes are typically made from vineyards on the surrounding slopes, here the
soils are better draining and suit lower yielding vines.
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 wines of
unique character and complexity.

The vineyards are sustainably fertilised with natural compost produced on our farm, and meticulously managed to ensure optimal quality and flavour. Come harvest time, our grapes are selectively hand harvested in the cool, early morning hours to ensure only the healthiest, perfectly ripe bunches are used for production.

PAIRING SUGGESTION

This fresh Chenin Blanc will pair well with light fish and seafood dishes, such as crab salads, ceviche and sushi

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 wines, enjoyed by wine lovers around the globe.
True to our winery’s trademark, fruit driven style, the outstanding wines in our Signature range offer wine lovers exceptional value. In the words of Alvi’s Drift winemaker, Alvi van der Merwe, “think ‘great’, for the price of good!”

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 wines. Only premium free-run juice was used to create
this unwooded wine. To ensure maximum fruit and 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
