Alpha Box And Dice

Mistress, Tempranillo, Carignan, Grenache


The Mistress is the ode to the harvest - that time of year when the grapes are plucked ripe from the vine, filled with long days and long nights and lots of good times! We treat it as a bit of a celebration (after all it only happens once a year!) and the Mistress is where we spare a thought for our friends, families and partners to whom, looking from the outside in, it seems like the honeymoon phase of joyous new fling where it enraptures it's victim to the exclusion of all else. As a wine, it embodies all that we love about blends, where each component complements the others to craft a complete and seductive wine. With this blend, we get earthy, dark fruits from the Tempranillo and that soft structure too. Carignan supplies the fresher elements with dried herbal notes and the touch of Grenache levels up the aromas of spice.


Dark red.


A fistful of dried herbs and spices over plums, black olives and cola spice.


A soft, plush weight that accentuates the darker flavor components. Gentle, velvety tannins meld with the dusty elements to create an added layer of earthy feeling.
