The Sauvignon Blanc Grape

The Sauvignon Blanc Grape
The Ham family emigrated from Holland in the early 1960’s and established Awapuni Nurseries. In the 1980’s, the family decided to do something to satisfy their passion for horticulture and their love for fine wine: Alpha Domus was created in 1989. The name Alpha Domus comes from the first names of the five founding members of the family:parents Anthonius and Leonarda and sons Paulus, Henrikus and Anthonius. Domus is latin for horse. Since their first wines were released to the market in 1996, the Ham family has been constantly producing stunning exclusively estate-grown wines.

The Sauvignon Blanc Grape

Originally from France, Sauvignon Blanc is now a truly international grape variety. Famous in the Loire (Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé), Bordeaux (Entre-Deux-Mers, dessert wines in blend), it has moved around the world to Chile, South Africa, USA, and notably New Zealand.

Designed to be drunk young, it is an aromatic, crisp, dry white wine, with distinctive aromas of green pepper, nettles, grass, it is a good pairing with goats cheese. The warmer climates of New World Sauvignons can show gooseberry and riper, more exotic fruits.
