The Grapes were whole bunch pressed and the free run was barrel fermented using a combination of CY3079 and selected wild yeast strains. The wine was matured on lees for 11 months in French oak barrels where it was regularly battonaged.
Alvi's Drift Reserve Chardonnay
The Reserve Chardonnay is made in a Burgundian style ensuring complexity and great aging potential. The wine is a lovely pale straw colour with a nose showing elegant peach aromas. The palate is full, balanced and lingering with a hint of citrus, white chocolate and vanilla pods. Great with chicken and duck dishes, firm fish such as tuna and soft cheeses.The wine has great aging potential and will reward 2 to 5 years of cellaring.
