Alpha Box & Dice ‘Icona’ Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale 2015
The grapes are we destemmed, crushed and left for two weeks on skin, before letting the juice sit back and enjoy 24 months in barriques – one third new oak and the rest seasoned. The result is classic, approachable and expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Just like the icons that came before it.
Big, bold, juicy with cassis and blueberries on the nose and molasses, chocolate and cherries on the tongue. Beyond all of that, ultimately it’s like being embraced by an enormous purple clam with blueberry chops and wobbly rubber Fgrape flavoured hands just before they throw you into a vat of fermenting blueberry pie. Willie Wonka’s Veruca Salt – eat your heart out!
Thick juicy steak or the perfect accompaniment for after dinner nostalgic narratives.
