Good enough but not good enough to finish the bottle. Didn't have that zing...

The acidity of the wine helps give it a great weight, length and richness on the palate. Went great with the Indian food.

Lime and petrol. I dig it, mate.

A gigantic hefty brute of a Riesling vs the Mosel I typically imbibe...petrol, lemonade and honey briefly on the midpalate. Pretty darned tasty.

A little reductive out of the gate. Sweaty sock, grapefruit nose - seems a little closed. Body was a bit too abrasive with the acid. Grapefruit bomb.

Love the 11.8% alc on this Alkoomi Riesling. Pale, limpid green yellow. Aromas of struck flint, lime, chalk and green citrus. Flavors are expectedly lean and fresh. This can age for 10+ into something quite interesting.

⚡️New Release⚡️
Introducing the Alkoomi 2017 Black Label Riesling from Frankland River in WA’s Great Southern region.

“The resulting wine is a fine tuned blend created from parcels including the original planting of 1971, through to a block of Geisenheim clone, planted in 2003.”

It’s a crisp straw colour on the eye with beautiful floral notes intertwined with juicy pear and lemongrass on the nose. In the mouth it’s 100% thirst quenching with crunchy apples and a squeeze of lime entertaining the palate. Perfect refreshment on a sunny day!

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #sample #tcweekdaywine

Alkoomi from WA’s Great Southern region have recently released a number of new whites. One being this 2017 Riesling. It’s drinking beautifully right now but you can cellar it for 5-8 years if you enjoy Aged Riesling. Approx $15 a bottle.

Cristal clear baby yellow colour on the eye with hints of green. On the nose I pick up vanilla infused pears with a hint of flint/minerality. In the mouth those juicy pears 🍐 come through alongside thirst quenching and refreshing lemon 🍋 acidity. Put the G&T away and opt for this crisp tipple to get you through spring and summer I say!

This 2016 Black Label Riesling from Alkoomi Wines is a stunning new release. Their black label wines are made from only the best fruit and have the potential to age well, if you have the patience as they taste pretty good young too! Thanks Sandy & Rod for sending this sample over.

Pale yellow colour on the eye with a slight green fleck to it. The nose is delicate and shows hints of florals, citrus fruit and crisp minerality. The palate follows suit and is just so darn delectable - I could drink this all day and night. On first sip it felt like it was summer - I can't wait to get stuck into this over the hotter months. $25 per bottle.

I love the vibrant green bottle this Alkoomi Wines 2016 Riesling comes in, it simply oozes freshness! A bit of a fun fact for you here, traditionally German Rieslings were bottled in either brown or green glass bottles. Brown meant they were from the Rheingau region and green from the Mosel (this one's from the Great Southern regions Frankland River😜).

This 2016 is a brand new release which I was lucky enough to grab a sample of. At $15 a bottle it goes down quite nicely indeed.

It's a fresh lemon lime colour on the eye with crisp scents of Granny Smith apples, grapefruit and lean minerality coming through. The nose was rather delicate which surprised me when I tasted the palate as it had a nice oomph of flavour - think fresh lychee and pear with a lovely acidity that leaves you with a nice clean palate.
