Sauvignon Blanc, only more so. A thrilling bouquet of grass and gooseberries conjure images of a sunny summer’s day. Powerful passionfruit and crisp green apples are beautifully reined in. A sauvignon blanc that delights with each mouthful, enjoy!

Wine Makers

Alkoomi by Sandy & Rod Hallett

Merv and Judy Lange have been two of the great pioneers of the Western Australia wine industry and over thirty years have built Alkoomi into the top quality level of wine producers. They freely admitted to knowing more about wheat and sheep than grapes in the beginning, but went on to produce an excellent vineyard and also put plenty of time into understanding wine and tasting something new each day in pursuit of extending their wine knowledge.

 

As their knowledge grew, so did their reputation and their wines are now demanding much attention. The Alkoomi vineyard is located only 80kms 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. This climatic pattern is very similar to that of the best Bordeaux vintages. The estate is now run by their daughter Sandy and her husband, Rod Hallett.

 

When Rod married Sandy, he know nothing about the wine business. Once he began to get involved, he developed a passion for it. He decided to work with other winemakers to gain experience and hone his skills, before rejoining Sandy and taking over the running of Alkoomi in 2010.

Press Reviews

"Intense, lifted nose exuding aromas of gooseberries and yeast. Citrus flavours dominate a crisp palate." * * * Winestate Magazine, Australia

"Estate-grown grapes are picked at varying levels of maturity to add complexity to a wine that sees no oak and is early bottled. As befits a wine with a preponderance of semillon, grassy/lemony characters drive the bouquet and palate, which has considerable generosity and length." James Halliday Top 1 Wines.
