Served at lunch with feta cheese stuffed pitta bread and later a dinner of prawns and homemade ciabatta bread.

Wine Tasting Note: Alpha Domus Unoaked Chardonnay, 2004, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
Independents and Delicatessens for around £9.
An intense aroma – a cascade of tropical fruits – opens this gorgeous little number. The palate, fresh, lively and full is unadorned by oak leaving a mineral-edged texture and a rich, ripeness packed to the rafters with pear, melon and apple flavours. Acidity is crisp. Ends with a sherbet/citrus edged finish. Screwcapped. Alcohol 14%.
Scribblings Rating – 90/100

Alpha Domus is owned by the Harn’s, family of Dutch extraction. The wines taken their name from the initials of each member of the family. Domus is Latin for home.
