Alpha Box & Dice, Dead Winemaker's Society Dolcetto, Adelaide Hills, 2015
(at Victoria House, Southampton Row, 23 Jan 2018)
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2020
Another exciting wine from the Fairweather brothers, Dylan and Justin, and their winemaker Sam Berketa, who are about 80% towards their aim of having a wine for each letter of the alphabet. D is for Dolcetto, and is dedicated to Piedmont legend Bartolo Mascarello and his traditional, hands-off approach to winemaking. Fruit is from 20 year old vines, matured in neutral oak so the fresh red cherry fruit shines through. Juicy, lightly spiced and dangerously quaffable.
