A complex aroma of ripe berryfruits, plums, violet, licorice and hints of leather. Influences of sweet vanilla and toast result from oak barrel maturation.

Plum and blackberry are supported by clove and spicy notes. Game and leathery characters add complexity. The ripe fruit, sweet oak and firm tannins create a robust, complex wine with excellent length.

Merlot 45%, Cabernet Franc 22%, Malbec 20%, Cabernet Sauvignon 13%.

Producer Information

Alpha Domus winery was established by two generations of the Ham family. The vision began in 1990 with the purchase of bare land and planting began in 1991.

Our commitment is to produce premium quality wines that are true to varietal character, a reflection of their unique terrior and that represent exceptional value-for-money.

Our vineyard lies in the Bridge Pa sub-region of Hawkes Bay. From these soils, Alpha Domus winery produces world-class wines from a wide range of varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Syrah.

Alpha Domus winery makes and cellars premium wines entirely from our own vineyard.
Our Name
The name Alpha Domus was inspired by the first initial of each of our first names from our father through to the youngest brother; Anthonius, Leonarda, Paulus, Henrikus and Anthonius (ALPHA); Domus is Latin for house.

Alpha Domus is in the vicinity of an historic airfield, important for training pilots throughout New Zealand's aviation history. The aircraft used was the de Havilland Tigermoth which is depicted on the Alpha Domus labels. Henri has a passion for flying and holds a commercial pilot's license. The Tiger Moth also has connotations of romance, history, lasting design, beauty and passion; all elements found in great wine. The tigermoth and other colourful vintage planes are often seen in the skies above the vineyard.
