Alpha Domus The Navigator 2015 13.5% ABV
The Navigator is a Bordeaux style blend with succulent red plum, blackberry and strawberry, as well as cocoa, pepper and cedar spice. The wine also has silky tannins and gentle acidity, making it an ideal accompaniment for roast beef, and also a good match for rich tomato-based dishes and hard cheeses.
Established in 1989, Alpha Domus is a family-owned vineyard in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand - the country's oldest wine-growing region, with the first vines planted by French missionaries in the 1850s. ‘Alpha’ is derived from the initials of the founders names and ‘Domus’ is Latin for home. The name and label of this wine are a nod to the Tiger Moths which see fly over the winery. A magical creature with connotations of adventure, romance, beauty and passion.
