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.

Medium to full bodied palate, displaying a complex blend of flavours reminiscent of dark plums and cassis.

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.

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.

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.
