The Pilot by Alpha Domus 2015 Chardonnay and 2014 Merlot Cabernet


Alpha Domus is a well-established producer of classical Hawke’s Bay wine with 20 ha of vineyard on Maraekakaho Road in the Bridge Pa Triangle district. Owned by the Ham family, the brand is especially well-regarded for high quality expressions of Chardonnay and the Bordeaux red varieties which are the region’s hallmarks, as well as the new Viognier and Syrah varieties. The flagships are the ‘AD’ range, and the ‘Alpha Domus’ label is the premium. These are supported by the value and accessible ‘The Pilot’ tier, a reference to the nearby airfield. Here, I have another look at ‘The Pilot’ Chardonnay 2015, and ‘The Pilot’ Merlot/Cabernet 2014.
