Description

"Beautifully fruited and elegantly expressed, the inviting bouquet shows ripe nectarine, rockmelon, nougat and roasted cashew characters. The palate is succulent, creamy and flowing with excellent fruit weight and intensity, brilliantly supported by bright acidity and silky mouthfeel. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2019

A fresh looking Chardonnay with pale straw colour and green tinges to the hue. The bouquet abounds with appealing toasted oak influences, pure ripely scented citrus and crunchy stone fruit characters. Embellished with layers of flavour from extended time on yeast lees and creaminess from full malolactic fermentation, all wrapped around a smooth textural mid palate with a crisp, lingering finish. Generous and flavoursome but with balance and grace.

From its origins in 1989, establishing both vineyard and winery, Alpha Domus was a pioneer in the renowned Bridge Pa Triangle Wine District of Hawke’s Bay. New Zealand family owned, they have always been inspired to create beautiful wines of worth; the importance of quality and expert craftsmanship paramount. Alpha is derived from the first initials of the founding family members names in age descending order, Anthonius, Leonarda, Paulus, Henrikus and Anthony, Domus is Latin for home.

Food Pairing: Will accompany your seafood, white meats and salads perfectly.
