Alpha Box & Dice Tarot Grenache

Alpha Box & Dice Tarot Grenache

The late-ripening grenache soaks up the McLaren Vale sun, expressing it in Tarot through concentrated cinnamon-cherry compote, ripe tayberries and raspberry jam, with an earthy, savoury currant underneath. The generous palate is cushioned with soft, plush tannins and is seasoned with ample pink peppercorns. Partial whole bunch, this undergoes a short maceration and ferment before time in stainless, keeping the tannins low and fruit youthful and bright.

“A sensual and aromatic grenache with an abundance of cassis jelly and lovely spice. Red fruit and saltiness dominate the palate. Engaging, upbeat, characterful and complex without the trappings of excessive winemaking and heavy oak spice. Despite its characteristic level of alcohol, there is an almost ethereal tread to the wine. Undeniably crushable that features considerable length. Tasted October 2021.” - 93 points, Sara d’Amato, WineAlign.com

“From a plan, ideal and intendment to blast away from the past and do grenache in a fresh, open-knit, fragrant and crunchy McLaren Vale red fruit style. A grenache not too long ago noted as one to “chuck it in the fridge and drink it," as per the sage advice of Alpha Box & Dice’s Dylan Fairweather. The flat out juicy tang, country twang and pleasure this fine grenache elicits is truly exceptional. Honest, proper and the way wines should be. No bullshit, baggage nor skeletons neither. Save for the label. Pour this for your neighbours on Hallowe’en. They’ll thank you and love you for it. Drink 2021-2024. Tasted October 2021.” - 92 points, Michael Godel, WineAlign.com
