Story:

Made with Love... This wine was made with Frankland River fruit from several blocks, picked at optimal ripeness to give depth to the flavour profile. Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was cold soaked for three days prior to fermentation and then matured for 9 months with French oak to build complexity. Grapes are estate-grown on what are today sixteen-year old vines in Alkoomi’s gravelly-loam soil. Picked between 12.8° and 13.4° Baumé to build complexity and give depth. Maturation for 9 months in French Oak.
Ready to enjoy now although will gain complexity over the next three to five years with careful cellaring.  Alkoomi are a 3rd generation family estate in Frankland River, Western Australia. Wines are estate-grown in this cool climate region. The original 1220 hectare property was purchased by Sandy's grandparents, Vic and Netta Lange, in 1946 and initially operated as a mixed grain and livestock farm. It was grandma Netta who chose the name "Alkoomi" for their rugged property, on land over two million years old – a local Aboriginal word meaning "a place we chose".
