Once delivered to the cellar, hand-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are crushed and then transferred to fermentation tanks where they are left to ferment for approximately seven days.
Juice is drawn off on skins to enhance the wine’s colour and flavour intensity, after which the wine is selectively matured in French oak for up to eight months prior to bottling.
Alvi's Drift Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense and near-opaque with a dark-ruby centre and magenta rim, this wine’s nose is bursting with notes of ripe blackberry, cassis and hints of warm spice. Full-bodied and firm, the wine’s velvety tannins are well-balanced with its opulent fruit flavours. Delicious to drink right away, it has maturation potential of at least 3 years.
Enjoy this wine with spicy lamb curries, grilled tuna steak or a green-leaf salad with radicchio and endive.
