Description

Located just outside of the town of Frankland River, the Alkoomi estate is part of a 1220 acre family property, settled in 1946 by Sandy’s grandparents.  The land was originally used for farming livestock and grain. In 1971, the first hectare of cabernet vines was planted and has since expanded to approximately 100ha and include shiraz, malbec, riesling and sauvignon blanc.  The stone-walled cellar door overlooks the vineyards to the south and the vast landscape beyond. Open seven days a week, from 10am - 5pm, the cellar door also serves as a function centre for weddings and other large events.

The wine labels each feature the iconic Australian Grass Tree, and the icon wines are named after native Australian timbers: Wandoo, Blackbutt, Melaleuca and Jarrah.

The Wines
Winemaker Andrew Cherry has been with the Hallett family since 2010 and has amassed an impressive collection of medals, trophies and high scores for the Alkoomi wines.  The portfolio contains three separate ranges, the Icon wines (the best from each vintage), the Black Label wines (intended for mid-long term cellaring, premium fruit), and the White Label wines (intended for early drinking, short term cellaring). Varieties include riesling, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cabernet, malbec, shiraz and a selection of sweet wines (muscat, late harvest and a rose).

Wine Tasting
Taste the wines at the family run cellar door.

Unique Highlights
Alkoomi offers guest chalet accommodation on the property.

Description

Located in Frankland River 90 kilometres from the coast amidst the Great Southern’s valleys and slopes, the Ferngrove site was selected in 1998. The vineyard is nestled in undulating farmland surrounded by olive groves, wheat, sheep and cattle which enable a sheltered environment to grow grapes, while it still receives the cooling ocean influence for elegant fruit.

Ferngrove Wines are known for their intense flavour, fine acid and tannins that are truly reflective of the Frankland River region style. A range of varieties are produced across multiple price brackets, delivering value at each level. Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet blends are the focus.

The winery is also the site of one of Australia’s largest winery solar power systems, using 696 panels to power all of its operations.

Description

Established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam and located at the northern end of the Frankland River roughly 250kms east of Margaret River, Frankland Estate produces upwards of 15,000 cases each year.  The estate remains family owned and is largely run by Barrie and Judi’s children Hunter and Elizabeth Smith. 

35 acres of vineyards include many parcels nestled in areas of bushland surrounded by native plants and natural land formations which make the Frankland River viticultural region so beautiful. The soils are gravelly ironstone and contribute minerality to the wines.

 

The Wines:

The wines focus on site expression and terroir and the winery is best known for its award winning rieslings.  The Smith’s have been hosting an important annual riesling masterclass for more than a decade, which now travels interstate and features some of the greatest rieslings and riesling producers globally.  The family all travel widely and have worked in vineyards in Europe.  The winery and cellar door operate sustainably and since 2009 has been certified organic. 

Varieties include riesling, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and shiraz and due to the cold nights and warm days, have very high natural acidity and display many cool climate characteristics while retaining great power and presence. 

Winemakers: Hunter Smith, Brian Kent
