Tarot, Grenache

Alpha Box And Dice

Tarot, Grenache

History

Fear not, children of the grape, the Death Card heralds a transformation into a new state or regeneration. In this particular case, it refers to a poorly farmed plot of Grenache which was brought back to life by the Alpha Box & Dice crew. Tarot is sourced from three vineyards – two in Whites Valley and one in Willunga, both in the McLaren Vale region. Through 10% whole bunch fermentation and six months maturing on lees in tank, Winemaker Sam Berketa has upgraded our old faithful Tarot to be “a little bit richer, bolder and more of the darker fruit spectrum… everything you loved, just maxed out”. The contrast between light and dark is still there, just as detailed and enchanting as ever.
