Alpha Box & Dice NV Kit & Kaboodle Red Blend
Based in South Australia, Alpha Box & Dice is a winery that constantly pushes the boundaries by creating wines of sincere quality and interest. So what does the name mean? “Alpha” stands for alphabet, “box & dice” meaning a complete set in order to create an alphabet of wines. Alpha Box & Dice sources grapes from farmers across South Australia, sourcing only the best fruit possible, experimenting with varieties known worldwide and that are often relatively undiscovered in Australia. Look for Ripasso, Nero D’Avola and Dolcetto varieties.
Alpha Box and Dice have come up with another fantastic concoction featuring Aglianico/Shiraz/Cab Sav/Mataro/Nebbiolo and comes from across the South Australian region. A new and old world style of wine combined perfectly in one bottle, fruit driven (New World) yet savoury and dusty (Old World). Raspberry and Cassis play on the nose which are characters also displayed on the palate and dry soft tannins lead the way to characters of red fruits, joined by cloves, leather and cured meaty goodness.
Enjoy me with
Pair the Kit & Kaboodle with bbq brisket, southern style ribs, venison, wintery stews and charcoal grilled steaks. Foods like this match the fuller bodied varieties of this wine as the varietals included in this wine are bold in flavour and firm in tannin structure. Due to these flavours and tannins, the wine not only compliments the flavours of the meats, but also refreshes the palate.
