Alpha Domus – Flying High

29-Sep-2011
The wines of the Ham family's Alpha Domus estate are normally promoted in a reserved and stylish fashion, but the latest releases see them flying high, and I believe the Hams can be a little more vocal about them. I recently attended a wonderful vertical tasting of every vintage produced of the Alpha Domus flagship ‘Aviator' wine. I was impressed with the consistent nature of the ‘Aviator', its softer core, compared to many other Hawke's Bay Bordeaux-varietal wines, and the attractive spicy interest, with layers of flavour built in. I also saw a selection of the new and current range of releases. (Click here to read my report.) As in any tasting situation at a hospitality venue with many other tasters present, one's attention can easily diverted from the job, and it was a pleasure to see the three following wines submitted for a review in circumstances that allowed me to look at them a little more carefully. www.alphadomus.co.nz
