Our vineyards are grown using a philosophy of minimal intervention and fertilized with natural compost. The best blocks of each varietal at Alvi’s Drift are meticulously managed to optimise quality. These 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 this blend. The wine was cold fermented and matured on lees for four months. Battonage was carried out on a regular basis in line with the wine’s traditional style.
The ADS Viognier wine has a lovely pale straw colour. The nose is typical of Viognier but in an elegant and restrained way. The aromas are dominated by apricots and white peaches. The wine is soft, ripe, and round with a lovely viscous texture. The flavours linger, giving the wine a very long flavour profile. The fruit is nuanced with a hint of cashew nuts, elegant and aromatic, this really is a red wine drinker white. Good with spicy dishes and hard cheese.
