Alvi’s Drift Viognier

I have always liked a good Viognier. In fact, I’ve never had a Viognier I didn’t like, and when it comes to price to value, the Alvi’s Drift Viognier, from Worcester, has become a staple in our wine wrack.

As part of their Signature Range , the Viognier is cold fermented and matured on the lees for four months. Price spread for the Signature Range is between R40 R48 per bottle, and R276 for a case of the Viognier.

Tasting notes:

Sweet stone fruit, cashews, light lemon zest, vanilla, and mild oak.

In 2015 it won:

  • Double Gold Ultra Value Wines 2015
  • Gold Vitis Vinifera Award 2015
  • Silver International Wine & Spirit Competition 2015

I typically prefer red wine, but this wine always makes me happy. In my opinion it’s definitely worth stockpiling.
