Alkoomi White Label Cabernet Merlot
Frankland River
Available by the dozen
Merv and Judy Lange are true pioneers of the Frankland River winegrowing region, they planted their first single hectare of Alkoomi vines by hand, way back in 1971. Today, Alkoomi is one of the largest family owned labels in Western Australia. The balmy mesoclimes which surround their salubrious Frankland River property are so similar to those of Bordeaux, heaven sent for the construct of intensely aromatic Cabernet Merlot wines with magnificent structure, elegance and charm.

From their initial planting, Alkoomi's area under vine expanded throughout the 1980s and 1990s, growth of vineyards has continued steadily, without sacrificing the naturally low yields which produce wines with a concentration of good flavour. Vines are all pruned by hand, harvesting occurs in the cool of morning, usually starting just after midnight to ensure grapes arrive at the winery in top condition. Exclusively estate grown Merlot and Cabernet are picked at healthy levels of Baume off several individual blocks. Parcels are treated to three days of cold soak for extraction of good colour and fine tannin, followed by a course of ferments and a year's maturation in French oak.
 
Deep red with crimson hues. Bouquets of mulberry, blood plum and cassis meld with attractive crushed violets, notes of mint and spicy oak. Medium to full bodied palate, displaying a complex blend of flavours reminiscent of dark plums and cassis. Fine grained satin textured tannins lead to a lingering finish of cassis fruit supported by lovely spiced oak. Drinking well right now with a rich tomato pasta or juicy steak.

While relatively cool, the greater Margaret River region experiences an earlier vintage and can support red grape varieties which would not ripen so well elsewhere. The cooling influence of the Indian Ocean permits complex flavours to develop while warm days ripen the tannins. Picked at optimum ripeness, all vines are closely husbanded, harvest is carried out to healthy levels of baume. Fruit is destemmed but not crushed and each batch is handled separately. Treated to a cold maceratation and moderate ferment, yeasts are introduced to increase texture and aromatics. Following vinification and extended maceration, the wine is matured in a selection seasoned and new French oak barriques.
 
Vibrant red with purple hues. Mulberry, cassis and capsicum nose, multi black fruit characters, fragrant with blueberry and cassis. Mulberries, cassis and plum flavoured palate, supported by chocolate oak notes and exquisite licorice tannins.

Bunches of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are de-stemmed and each berry is split, to ensure minimal degradation and encourage fresh, clean flavours. Merlot is crushed to fully expose the delicate flesh, for a more refined and elegant textural development. A fortnight of cool, gentle vinification on skins, allows for slower, more controlled extractions of tannin and flavour. Ferments are pumped over thrice daily over the course of a fortnight and judiciously backed off as the juices evolve into wine. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed into a selection of French oak barriques for ten months maturation, followed by clarification and the final assemblage.
 
Bright garnet colour. A compelling bouquet of vibrant cherry skin and dark berry characters , mintiness, dried herb and vanilla. A bold palate driven by blackberry and mocha oak, fleshy plum sweetness followed by a herbal savoury length. The tannins are fine grained, almost silky in texture, in fine balance before a dark chocolate allspice finish. Match with lamb, steak or eggplant, a superb accompaniement to rare, gamey duck.
