Hand and machine harvested grapes were pressed and settled for 48 hours. The juice was then racked to barrel for fermentation, We use a selection of new (20%), 1 and 2 year old French and European oak barriques using a variety of yeast types and some indigenous fermentation. Lees stirring took place over several months to increase palate weight and roundness. The barrels were blended and received a light fining, cold stabilisation and filtration prior to bottling.

A delicate and complex aroma of rose petal, lemon balm, Turkish delight and cardamom. Barrel fermentation and yeast lees stirring contribute creamy vanilla and toasted brioche characters.

Sweet fruit is supported by a creamy texture. Peach, poached pear and mandarin essence integrate with lychee, ginger and sweet yeasty notes. This is a well balanced wine with fresh acidity and a lingering sweet fruit finish

The lively fresh characters of this wine may be enjoyed when the wine is young however some cellaring will result in a more rounded wine.

Great summer drinking with seafood, white meats and spicy dishes.

100% Viognier.

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.
