Alpha Box & Dice Golden Delicioso, McLaren Vale [Orange Wine] 2021


Alpha Box & Dice

Golden Delicioso, the artist formerly known as Golden Mullet Fury, is one in a Semillon. Liquid youth putting a tantalising tang to a household name. A designer drop haute on the horizon of a hazy summer afternoon. Golden Delicioso is a stickered love letter spelling out, 'APPLE OF MY EYE'.

A modern, cutting-edge collection of wines - just look at the labels - from the passionate and slightly bonkers trio of...



100 Semillon from Magpie Springs Vineyard, Hope Forest. Unknown clone planted on own roots in the late 90s. Orange/yellow gravelly clay-loam over sandstone. Managed with organic principles. Harvested in the cool of the morning. 50% destemmed, 50% fermented as whole bunches. Wild fermented for 10 days on skins. Gently pressed to seasoned barriques for 12 months. Racked to large format cask for a further 12 months. Full and spontaneous MLF

Tasting notes

Roasted nuts, spiced peaches, dried grass on the nose. The palate is oily, viscous, spicy, luscious, textured and chewy. Like caressing a crushed velvet couch in an apricot grove.

Food match

Crispy pork belly or miso glazed aubergine.
