SUPERSTAR HAWKES BAY BLENDED RED AT A REALISTIC PRICE.
GOLD MEDAL | AIR NZ Wine Awards 2017
Alpha Domus's flagship Bordeaux blend knocks it out of the park again and with the skyrocketing prices of the Hawkes Bay prestige labels, there is a strong argument to support 'Aviator' as the regions best value super premium red.
The 2016 is a richly weighted Cabernet Sauvignon dominant release with Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec in support. It's a study in how the Bordeaux varietals perform in the Bridge Pa Triangle sub-region and showcases the areas dark fruit characters with lots of spicy oak and classic Cabernet tobacco leaf characters on the palate. Seriously good.
