Description

Lovely brilliance to this wine with a pale lemon colour. The nose is complex with aromas of peaches, stewed quince, Honey Suckle, hazelnuts and hints of butterscotch. The wine has a structured, wellrounded palate, very well-balanced tannins and acids with the fruit following through with great length to a memorable finish.

  1. Michel Bernard

    I picked up a bottle of this nectar by chance at the Cape Town Airport Dutyfree at the end of a wine trip to the Winelands in early March – feels like ages now … I had never heard about Alvi’s Drifit, although I have been following SA wines for quite a few years – I am a big fan., and the competition is pretty fierce where I live, in London UK. When I read on the back label that it was a blend of Ch blanc/Viognier/Chardonnay I knew I had to try it – white blends are to me one of the shining stars of SA winemaking, and among the 3-4 styles available the Chenin blanc dominated ones are my favorites. They remind me of the best Rhone whites from where I come from originally. And on top of that it was an absolute bargain at under £8. This Alvi’s Drive Reserve CVC is powerful but fresh and clean, it would have been even better if I had waited a bit longer but never mind – in these days of CoV-19 you should not wait too long for your pleasure !

    Alvi’s Drift Reserve CVC has been my all time favourite since I tasted it first two years ago. It compares with wines three times its price. A winner in my books and I’d like the whole world to know. Loving this deep, complex, full round yet clean blend to absolute bits. Please Alvi’s Drift, before you triple your pricing, allow me to buy out your full stock of this heavenly product!

    Within the category of Cape white blends this stands head and shoulders above the competition… A nose that draws your into aromas of sea spray salinity, citrus blossom and ripe white peach. The craftsmanship of this blend is pleasing to the taste, utterly refined and elegant w/ old world characteristics reminiscent of Rheingau Riesling… the purity of the fruit and cleansing acidity makes for a wine that is oh-so drinkable, a Sunday sipper paired with spicy Vietnamese spring rolls.
