Alpha Domus AD Semillon

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
One of the country's few quality Semillons, this wine is estate-grown at Maraekakaho, in Hawke's Bay. The 2004 vintage, a barrel-fermented style, is light yellow/green, fresh and tight, with crisp, dry, lemony, slightly grassy flavours. A slightly austere, moderately ripe-tasting wine with some complexity, it should be long-lived.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
The 2000 vintage is impressively weighty, ripe and rich. Estate-grown at Maraekakaho and fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in French oak barriques, it's a light yellow Hawke's Bay wine with a strongly oak-influenced bouquet. The palate is powerful and concentrated, with strong, ripe, tropical fruit flavours seasoned with biscuity oak. There is no 2001.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The powerful 1998 vintage is a mouthfilling (14 per cent alcohol), rather Chardonnay-like Hawke's Bay wine with very ripe, restrained fruit characters wrapped in quality oak. Soft, creamy and weighty, it's still developing and well worth cellaring to 2000-01.
