Alpha Domus The Pilot Chardonnay
- Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
Emigrating from Holland in the early 1960s the Ham family established themselves as nurserymen before going on to create Alpha Domus in 1990. They produced their first vintage in 1996 and joined our portfolio shortly after. The family's commitment is to produce premium quality wines that are true to varietal character and are a reflection of their unique terroir. All the wines are single vineyard estate grown and are made at the on-site winery.
"Enticing aromas of ripe tropical fruit combine with melon, pear and gentle spice notes. Clean citrus flavours, toasted brioche and fine mineral characters add complexity. The palate is a fresh, lively wine with pear, guava and stone fruit flavours. It has a soft supple texture with sweet fruit and fresh bread characters balanced by clean, citrus fruit." Alpha Domus
