Alkoomi make a judicious use of water supplied from on site dams to prevent vine stress during extended dry periods, without sacrificing the naturally low yields that produce concentrated flavours. The vines are all pruned by hand, harvesting occurs in the cool of very early morning, usually starting at 2.00 am, to ensure that grapes arrive at the winery in top condition. Chardonnay is harvested throughout the cooler hours and pressed, juices are settled overnight and racked over a high proportion of juice solids. Upon completion of ferments, batches are held on sedimentery lees, regularly stirred to build complexity and texture before bottling. Alcohol 12.8%
 
Brilliant pale gold, emerald hues. Aroma of peaches and cream with subtle savoury notes. Honeydew melon and white peach on the palate with hints of vanilla and hazelnut and creamy textural structure underpinned by soft, mineral acidity.
