The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning to preserve the fruity aromas and bright colour of the grapes. Grown entirely on the Alvi’s Drift Estate, the grapes were fertilized using organic compost produced on the farm.
In The Cellar
Made from optimally ripe Pinotage grapes, the fresh, cool juice was kept in contact with the grapes just long enough to obtain the brilliant pink hue without the extraction of harsh tannins. The juice was then clarified and fermented cold in the same fashion as white wine.
The wine has a bright, attractive pink colour with aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The palate is slightly off-dry giving the wine an added fruitiness on the palate. A lovely, refreshing wine ideal for picnics and other outdoor events.
The label proudly displays a modified version of the van der Merwe family crest. Sealed with a screw cap to maximize flavour retention and minimize oxygen ingress to the wine to ensure it remains fresher and more enjoyable for longer.
