Cape Blends >30% Pinotage (if wine contains more Shiraz than Pinotage, please enter it in Class 27) (26) Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2019 and older
The Alvi’s Drift Reserve Drift Fusion
is a Cabernet dominated Cape Blend
ensuring that the classic Bordeaux variety
and the venerable Shiraz are beautifully
complimented and seamlessly bound
with the Cape’s “own” grape, Pinotage.
This velvety classic cape blend has an
intense aroma of ripe blackberries,
cherries and plums with beautifully
integrated vanilla and cashew nut
characters cascading through the pallet
to a lingering finish. This wine will continue
to improve with age for 5-8 years.
A Perfect partner for red meat, game, duck and mature cheeses.
