Alpha Box & Dice, 'Fog' Nebbiolo, 2016, Adelaide Hills, Australia


A lovely red wine which feels surprisingly light for it's 14.3% ABV, and extremely well balanced. It shows that superb Nebbiolo characteristic so well - a rose floral, cherry and tobacco aroma with a splattering of turkish delight. Good punchy fruit, with subtle oak influence and little flashes of vanilla flavors. This is a fantastic wine, made extremely well, and is superb example of Nebbiolo (Barolo and Barbaresco wines) outside of Italy.

The fruit is sourced from the Protero vineyard in Adelaide Hills.

A modern, cutting-edge collection of wines from the passionate trio of Dylan and Justin Fairweather and winemaker Sam Berketa. AB&D was founded in McLaren Vale in 2008 and is unconventional in its approach; there are no ‘regional, varietal or stylistic’ boundaries, just great wines from great fruit.
