Alvi’s Drift Signature Pinotage

A cellar specialty since it was first bottled in 2006, Alvi’s Drift Pinotage has an intense black cherry colour with a youthful ruby rim. A juicy plum-and-ripe-black-cherry character dominates both bouquet and palate, with hints of liquorice and sweet vanilla. The wine boasts a seamless tannin structure; well balanced with subtle hints of berries and vanilla following through. It can be enjoyed immediately, but will reward with up to three years of cellar maturation.
