    Winemaker Notes

    Alkoomi is recognized as one of Australia's most outstanding wineries. Year after year this family owned winery produces wines of exceptional quality, elegance and class. It is located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The southern influence makes this the coolest climate region in Western Australia and one blessed with reasonable rainfall, long autumn sunshine and generally very consistent climatic conditions year by year. Alkoomi is recognized as one of Australia's most outstanding wineries. Year after year this family owned winery produces wines of exceptional quality, elegance and class.

    Cool summer temperatures and dry conditions in 2002 led to a very good vintage. Traditional red winemaking techniques were used and the wine was matured for 12 months in a combination of 20% new American barriques and 80% one to four year old French oak barrels (Never and Allier).

    The color is deep crimson with purple tinges. The bouquet displays an attractive blend of licorice, spicy plum and black mulberry fruit aromas with a subtle touch of vanillan oak. The palate is loaded with delicious rich cherry and mulberry fruit flavors with big palate flavor and subtle soft tannins. Perfect to serve with a steak or rich pasta dish. Drinking with gusto now and will continue to for the next three years.

    Alkoomi, Australia
    Alkoomi  Winery Image
    The Alkoomi vineyards and winery are located in the rapidly expanding Frankland River region northwest of Albany in Western Australia, about 80kms inland from the Southern Ocean. The southern influence makes this the coolest climate region in W A and one blessed with reasonable rainfall, long autumn sunshine and generally very consistent climatic conditions year to year. The name Alkoomi, which in Aboriginal dialect means "the place we chose", was selected by the original settlers in the 1880's. Merv Lange's father purchased the 1,220 hectare property in 1946 when it was still largely bush country, and developed a mixed farm of grain, sheep and cattle. The property retains many large Australian native grass trees and this distinctive plant is used as the logo on the Alkoomi labels. The Alkoomi wine business is very much a family affair, headed up by Merv and Judy Lange with son Wayne (viticulturist), his wife Elaine and son-in-law Rod (operations manager) and his wife Sandra all involved. Alkoomi's reputation has flourished as one of the leading small family wine makers in the country. The superb varietal flavors evident in the wines are recognized by James Halliday in his "Guide to the Wines of Australia" (2000 edition), awarding Alkoomi a rare five-star rating. Halliday notes: "Racy Riesling, tangy Sauvignon Blanc, fruit-driven peach citrus Chardonnay, peppery Shiraz curranty minty Cabernet topped off with the finely crafted cedary Blackbutt are all consistently excellent " For detailed wine notes, please click on the link below to visit

    Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
