Growing in the ancient limestone soils the Breede River Valley is so famous for, our mature Chardonnay vineyard is ideally situated for yielding grapes of the quality, character and complexity required for an outstanding MCC sparkling wine. Our Pinot Noir vineyards are situated on north-facing slopes, with grapes grown in black slate soil. At Alvi’s Drift, it remains our philosophy that fruit should be phenologically ripe to ensure wines with an excellent, fruit-driven character and perfect mouthfeel. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes for this wine are specifically harvested at optimal ripeness in the cool, early morning hours to protect the acidity so crucial to producing a superb Brut Nature sparkling wine.
