    Alvi's Drift Muscat de Frontignan is an outstanding example of a richly ripe and lush dessert wine. Its bright golden hue reveals already in the glass the late maturity of the grapes used and complex aromas of dried fruits, sweet nutmeg grapes and Christmas plum puddings conquer the nose. The high sugar content of the wine provides for an almost viscous, silky and incredibly decadent mouthfeel. The palate is lined with an abundance of dried apricots and peaches and a creamy nuttiness. A rare and largely undiscovered jewel of the South African wine world, which was only produced in small quantities.

    Treatment in the cellar

    The grapes for this stunning dessert wine come exclusively from Alvi's own vineyards and were harvested at a very late stage of maturity. The grapes spent a week on the skin after arrival at the winery. Fermentation began before crushing and before the grapes were sprayed. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to small French oak barrels where the Muscat matured for 18 months before being bottled for consumption.
