Alvi's Drift, 221 Chenin Blanc 750ml 2019South Africa, Western Cape
'Entirely produced from free-run juice, this is typical of the winery's full-flavoured style. Combining a small wooded component with 80% that's fermented in stainless steel to emphasise the passion fruit and orange zest fruit, this is vanilla spicy and appealing at a price that most people can afford. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 90/100
'Alvi’s Drift 221 Chenin Blanc has a brilliant pale straw color. The nose reflects a delightful nectarine and peach fruit character with hints of quince, apple blossom, and vanilla. This is an elegant wine, well rounded and creamy on the palate with a long, lingering finish of peach and a hint of honeycomb.' – Winemaker
