Alpha Box & Dice, Blood of Jupiter, Sangiovese Cabernet. 2015 [E7]
AB&D self-proclaimed Super Tuscan, super Australia - blend of Barossa Sangiovese and McLaren Cabernet. It’s dark, freshly meaty with a nose of crushed minerals, pomegranate, cranberry and blood… honestly, no pun intended. All this follows through in the mouth but even more so with an additional tangy, ferrous note. An amazing thing, this wine illustrates exactly AB&D’s ambitions to nod with respect to European heritage but to have the courage to have a local expression. It’s ample proof of Sam Berketa’s gentle touch and ability to express a truly harmonious Australian blend.
A blend of 79% Sangiovese from Day Vineyards at Mt Crawford, Barossa Valley and 21% Cabernet from Harnett Vineyard in McLaren Vale.
AB&D the bringer of jollity. From the grape of Jove this is a specialised vinous find full of good humour. So quench your thirst and mood - drink from Jupiter’s cup.
This wine is suitable for consumption by Vegetarians and Vegans.
