The Grapes

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 grapes were selectively hand-harvested to ensure only healthy, ripe bunches were used for production.

In The Cellar

Only the premium free-run juice was used for this wine which was fermented in French oak. The wine was aged on lees and buttoned regularly to maximize flavour and complexity.

The Wine

This lightly wooded blend has a lovely straw colour with aromas of ripe apricots, peaches, and spanspek. The palate is full and creamy with subtle roasted nut characters balancing the fruit aromas. Great with salty soft cheeses and white meat such as pork, chicken and turkey.
