Frankland River's long, cool ripening season provides great conditions for Chardonnay. Alkoomi's White Label opens with delicate citrus, melon and vanillin aromas, some faint oak spice is in attendance too. Lush flavours on the palate consist of honeydew melon, white peach and hazelnut. The structure leans toward creamy texture, all underpinned by soft, mineral acidity.
From the Winery
The fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning and pressed to tank. The juice was settled overnight and racked with a high proportion of juice solids prior to fermentation in stainless steel. The wine was kept on fermentation lees and stirred regularly to build complexity and texture before bottling.
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.
