Alkoomi Wandoo 2017


Semillon from Frankland River but made as an iconic style and a very different beast to what we see from the Hunter Valley. This is from a single block planted in 1987, free run juice sees fermentation in an even split of stainless steel and French oak barrels with the wine spending five months on lees. The colour is a mix of lime and gold whilst the nose provides notes of citrus, especially grapefruit, herbs, spices, and a hint of nectarine. There is a pleasing ripeness here, with some intriguing complexity. Very good length, the wine is linear and well-focused. Enjoy it now and over the next six years.
