Alpha Box & Dice, Golden Mullet Fury Semillon Riesling 2019
Wonderful aromatics of lemon verbena oil, honey, sweet mixed spice and lemon zest, there's a medicinal bitter herbal note to this, akin to that in a green Chartreuse, that runs all the way through it and an array of citrus fruit flavours gives in further impetus,
Each component in the GMF was treated individually. The Semillon was destemmed whilst the Riesling had 60% whole bunch with the remaining crushed on top. Both were fermented until dry with wild yeast and spent an extra week on skins to build texture. The Riesling was handpicked with >65% Botrytis affected grapes, pressed for 3 hours long and slow then wild fermented for 4 months in old barrels until dry. All were aged separately in seasoned oak and went through spontaneous MLF, with the Muscat and Semillon both spending 9 months in a large format cask.
Based in McLaren Vale, South Australia, Alpha Box & Dice are embarking on an Alphabet of Wine. Each 'letter' embodies an individual winemaking project, with the end goal being a complete collection of wines that celebrates the diverse styles and varieties found in South Australia's famous wine regions, including McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Barossa Valley. Since its beginning in 2008, AB&D has become a champion of South Australia's alternative – particularly Mediterranean – varieties, exhibiting innovation at every step of the process by bending traditional winemaking norms.
