Alpha Domus The Barnstormer Syrah 2012
Emigrating from Holland in the early 1960s, the Ham family established themselves as nurserymen before going on to create Alpha Domus in 1990. They produced their first vintage in 1996. The estate has always been well known for its fantastic Bordeaux style reds. Last year saw the introduction of new labels incorporating the family interest in all things aviation. The wine was matured using French oak for a seven month period. A fruit-driven Syrah with aromas of liquorice, black pepper, plum and floral notes. Medium bodied with flavours of dark red fruits, chocolate and savoury tones. French oak imparts spice and vanilla. Soft supple tannins and a lingering finish make this an excellent food wine.
Great with pizza, pasta, lamb and moroccan style dishes.
