Alkoomi

Had a look at Crystal Wines offerings on Alkoomi Wines. I have to admit I’m a regular buyer of wine from Crystal. These offerings don’t excite me, but you be the judge. http://www.crystalwines.com

2004 / Alkoomi / Frankland River / cabernet / S$50, member S$47.50 – Jeremy Oliver rates this wine at 87 points (4 star) drinking 2012-2016. My research shows it retails in Australia at around A$22 so at S$47.50, it’s beyond my comparative PPB (price pain barrier).

2003 / Alkoomi / Frankland River / shiraz viognier / S$50, member S$47.50 – Jeremy Oliver rates this at 91 points (4.5 star) drinking 2008-2011. Similar RRP in Australia so same PPB.

    I have to agree that the reds are often closed and tight and take time to come around. If one is patient with them they are good after a few years of cellaring. Drank some out of the ninties just two weeks back and they were great.

    Their Riesling is worth a go.

Wine quotations

"A good bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world" - Louis Pasteur

“The unexacting palates of the masses…are content to ask no question [on origin] so long as a florin or half-a-crown will purchase a roomy flagon of strong , full-bodied, fruity wine” – CE Hawker writing in 1907
