Alpha Box & Dice, McLaren Vale, South Australia

Alpha Box & Dice is a quirky, small-batch winery and an absolute must-see within the McLaren Vale region.  The ethos of Alpha Box & Dice is originality, as the wines are not aligned with a specific region, variety or style. Each wine release is named with each corresponding letter  of the alphabet (hence the name) and with a story, reflecting the essence of the wine itself.

The cellar door

“Wines without boundaries – regional, varietal or stylistic. Wines whose entire raison d’être is to be delicious and to express the minutia and complexity of site and vintage conditions. Wines that enchant; wines that delight you and leave you betwixt the rock and a ripe grape.”

The selection when there

During my visit I purchased:

  • Siren Nero D’Avola, 2013:  Every flavour I adore in wine; “rich berry & plum fruits underscored with enough abundant exotic spice and dried tangerine rind complexity to lure the canniest of wine drinkers to their fate.”
  • Rebel Rebel Montepulciano 2015: A delicious Italian red of red fruits and jasmine.

But because there are only small batches made, you need to be quick! However, all the wines here are fantastic, with something for every palate.
