In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba.

Chardonnay Frankland River Western Australia
Alkoomi take full advantage of the cool, maritime Frankland River climes, to encourage the development of all the charming fruit characters which articulate a fresh, unwooded Chardonnay. Young and young at heart, minus the oak and with a little more oomph than usual for this type of wine, finished to a crisp, fruit driven styling, it lingers long and fruit forward with some cheeky punch bowl flavours, lime rickey, pawpaw and peach. Its wonderful freshness make it a cinch with all cosmopolitan luncheon fare.

Case of 12

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.
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. A generously proportioned wine made to appreciate in its youth, vibrant and fresh.
