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.
Western Australia’s Great Southern is one of Australia’s best sources of riesling – it’s cool and inland with a continental climate which suits this grape. The remarkable thing is how wineries like Alkoomi field such fine riesling at such a low price. This is their entry-level bottling, but make no mistake, it’s a high-quality wine. Tight, lively and energy-filled, it smells of stone-fruits including nectarine, and while the acidity is crisp and lively the palate is not too dry but fruity, balanced and charmingly accessible. Drink now to six-plus years. Gourmet Traveller WINE
