Winemaker Notes

Estate grown Riesling (predominantly a Geisenheim clone planted 2000) from gravelly loam soils. Harvested at 2 am, crushed then pressed while chilled to preserve the delicate Riesling flavors. Free-run juice is fermented in stainless steel and held off from malolactic fermentation. Sterile filtration, minimal sulfur addition. 2.5g/L residual sugar.Colour, brilliant pale gold with green flecks. Intense flavors of grapefruit and musk with a sherbety acidity giving freshness and length to the palate.

Wine Enthusiast

This wine has come up a few quality notches and a great vintage helps. It’s still young and therefore a little austere, but offers delicate notes of red-apple skins, lime, lavender talc, herbs and white spices. It’s bone dry and chalky textured with crunchy, laser sharp acidity, a strong mineral streak and fresh limey fruit right to the close. Acid hounds will dig this now but most will find another year or two in bottle will make this wine really come out of its shell. Little Peacock Imports. Editors’ Choice

Alkoomi  Winery Image

Alkoomi (a name taken from a local aboriginal dialect meaning “a place we chose”) is a family owned and operated winery run by Sandy and Rod Hallett. Their fruit is 100% estate grown in the cool climate of Frankland River, a few hours drive southeast of Margaret River.

Sandy’s parents planted the first vines in 1971, producing wine five years later. The vineyard shares similar climatic conditions to those found in Bordeaux. The vineyard is located fifty miles inland from the Southern Ocean, resulting in good winter rains and dry ripening months. Summer days and evenings are cooled by fresh sea breezes, enabling ideal slow ripening of grapes.

All vines are pruned by hand and no herbicides or pesticides are in the vineyard. Any water used during production comes directly from rain collected in dams or tanks. From 2013, solar panels have been installed to minimize carbon footprint and increase energy efficiency.

Today, Sandy and Rod along with winemaker Andrew Cherry work in and oversee all facets of the vineyard and winery. Alkoomi is recognized for its elegant Cabernet, Shiraz and Cabernet blends, while their Riesling has helped establish the reputation of Frankland River as a premier Australian region for this varietal.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
