Alpha Box & Dice Golden Mullet Fury 2009

When I first met Justin Lane I thought the guy was on fire as we spoke so fast with such passion that I had trouble understanding him.  Since meeting him and talking to him multiple times I have come to understand that he is an intellectual that has a deep appreciation for how to make good booze.  It all starts with the right union of variety, soil and climate.  And after tasting this I had a light bulb moment.

The wine is alive with mascadelle for the first day then the glorious flavour of the Adelaide Hills Chardonnay kicks in.  On the palate there is a zestiness that leaves me feeling alive, refreshes and hungry. mmm this needs something as it is a textural number with plenty of flavour and huge appeal.  What is more there is a great length on the palate and synergy in motion between the two grape varieties. One could call it dry and savoury yet with fruit sweetness. Get on board.
