This Alpha Box & Dice ‘Tarot’ 2018 Grenache was in last months #thetcwineclub box. Having gone through a Wiccan phase as a teen (I even had tarot cards!), this wine naturally jumped out at me 🧙‍♀️ We also recently saw the new Fantastic Beasts movie 👌

Alpha Box & Dice produce great and very interesting wines. This one is made from McLaren Vale grown Grenache grapes. It bears the ‘Death Card’ on the label because the Alpha team brought the Grenache vines back to life after they had been neglected.

More fun details about the wine:

🍇 Undergoes whole bunch fermentation
🍇 Carbonic maceration
🍇 Long lees aging in tank & puncheon

If your not sure what any of those terms mean, pop them in google and learn something new 💡

In the glass it’s a brilliant crimson colour. Red fruits, tar, bay leaves and raspberry jello entice the nostrils. While in the mouth it’s juicy and full of flavour. It’s like a medley of black, red and blue berries with a sprinkling of white pepper. Y〰️U〰️M!

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #gifted #opinionsaremyown

A lighter style Grenache from the Vale with high acidity and a touch of spice to finish.

Getting some bag in box vibes, unclear. Okay but nothing special.
