Our vineyards are grown using a philosophy of minimal intervention and fertilised with natural compost produced on the farm. The best blocks of each varietal at Alvi's Drift are meticulously managed to optimise quality. These Chenin grapes were selectively hand harvested to ensure only healthy, ripe bunches were used for production.
IN THE CELLAR
Only the best free run juice was used in the production of this fruity unwooded wine. Highly clarfied juice was cold fermented to maximise flavour retention.
Light straw in colour, the chenin blanc is full bodied yet elegant. The wine is very viscous, giving it a wonderful mouthfeel and texture. The acid is well integrated and balanced resulting in a palate that shows great length and fullness for an unwooded wine. Primary fruit flavours of white peaches and nectarine dominate the nose and palate. The resulting wine shows a rare combination of intense aromas, complexity and length which is an excellent example of South African Chenin blanc. Compliments fish, salads and white meat dishes.
