Why We Love This Wine
A 4th generation family owned winery in Western Australia's Southern area of Frankland River, Alkoomi's vineyard management philosophy has always been quality over quantity while practicing sustainable farming. The cool climate and well-drained gravelly loam soils here are similar to those of Bordeaux in France. The long, cool ripening conditions in this area are perfect for the production of grapes of intense varietal character. Grapes are harvested at the peak of ripeness in the cool, early morning to retain primary fruit freshness from juice, to fermentation, to bottle. A full flavored & deep garnet colored red, this wine evokes aromas of sweet cherries and cassis. The palate is full & rich with blueberry & blackberry flavors balanced out by silky smooth tannins leading to a long, complex finish.
Winemaker / Tasting Notes
An elegant red with perfectly ripened flavors of cassis & black currant with complex touches of cedary oak on the palate and fine powder tannins.
