It is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Viognier and Chardonnay. The 2011 Alvi’s Drift AD CVC has a lovely pale lemon/straw color. The nose showed lifted peach and apricot characters. A lovely blend of roasted nuts with a hint of butterscotch and ripe melons. The palate is balanced to perfection with oak, fruit, and acidity all adding to the wines length and fullness. Great with Asian dishes, seafood and soft cheeses.
The wine combines the grassy flavours of the Sauvignon blanc with the citrus flavours of the Chardonnay (lightly oaked). The wine has a good acidic backbone, which adds length to the wine. Fresh and crisp, to be consumed within 2 years of vintage.
A pleasant dry white wine made from 100% Semillon. Hints of kiwi and jasmine compliments the spicy pear-drop aromas. Lovely with crisp grassiness due to early harvesting, low in alcohol and kilojoules; perfect quaffing for the health conscious.
