ALPHA BOX AND DICE 'ENIGMA' ADELAIDE HILLS BARBERA
With the colour of arterial blood, the nose reveals wild berries, rhubarb and custard. The palate expresses varietal cherry-stone fruit with a gentle brick-like texture.
Grapes are picked from the Christmas Hill Vineyard in Kuitpo and Carmine Peppicelli Vineyard in Kenton Valley, Gumeracha in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. The soil is light red clay loam. Whole bunch Fermentation inoculated with neutral yeast. 24 months in old barriques (225L) and puncheons (500L). The latter is favoured for gentler maturation.
