Estate fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness in the early hours of the morning and pressed to tank. After cold settling the juice was fermented in tank and kept on lees post fermentation to improve mouthfeel and complexity, before an early bottling to retain freshness.
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".
