There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts.

Case of 12

The cool climate and gravelly loam soils of Frankland River are well suited to the production of intense and elegantly structured wines. Alkoomi's vineyard is located only eighty kilometres inland from the Southern Ocean, where it is nourished by good winter rains and blessed by dry ripening months. Summer days and evenings are cooled by fresh sea breezes, enabling the idyllic slow ripening of grapes. Parcels of Shiraz off several estate blocks of vine, are picked at ripe and healthy levels of baume, to contribute a measure of complexity and heighten the flavour profile. Parcels are treated to three days of cold soak followed by a course of ferments and nine momths maturation in French oak.
Deep magenta with purple hues. A complex bouquet of savoury, toasty oak behind sweet blackberry and mulberry fruit fragrances. Sweet middle palate of juicy cherry, aromatic plum, notes of rich dark chocolate counterpointed by supple tannins and sweet vanillin oak. Long and lingering, highly textural finish, highly expressive of the Frankland River's impeccable suitability to Shiraz, drinking brilliantly upon release.
