There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery.

Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

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.
