Our vineyards are grown using a philosophy of minimal intervention and fertilized with natural compost produced on the farm. The best blocks of each varietal at Alvi’s Drift are meticulously managed to optimize quality. These Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were selectively hand-harvested to ensure only healthy, ripe bunches were used for production.
The Chardonnay and Pinot noir grapes were whole bunch pressed to ensure a soft and elegant base wine. The wines were fermented at cool temperatures and aged on their lees prior to secondary fermentation.
This elegant and flavoursome MCC has a pale straw colour with a fine and persistent bead. The aromas of freshly baked bread crust and biscuits dominate the nose. Roasted almonds and walnuts are evident on the pallet which is complemented with a balanced and dry finish. Perfect as an aperitif or for every celebration.
