Alkoomi Wines is one of WA's largest family owned and operated wine producers. Owners, Sandy and Rod Hallett, together with their children, Laura, Emily and Molly represent the third and fourth generation living and working on the Alkoomi property in Frankland River. It is this family's love and commitment to the place they chose in the Great Southern, as well as Alkoomi's unique combination of gravelly loam soils, warm sunny days and cool nights during the ripening season that produce grapes of intense varietal character and a sense of place.
Nine small, separate blocks of estate grown fruit harvested over a period of two weeks were selected for this vintage. The components were matured in twenty percent new French Oak for 14 months, the result being a wine of complexity through vineyard expression and time in oak.
2017 Review: Elegant, supple and characterful. It's not big but it doesn't need to be. Mulberry and blackcurrant, leather and minted chocolate. It's hard to pick where fruitiness gives way to savouriness but both are in play. Tannin has been massaged to just the right point. Drink by: 2032; Price: $24.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2019; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
