Limited Release: 2018 Hand Bottled Magnums

We saved a portion from the 2018 vintage from three of our most popular ‘letters’ to create a run of super small batch, hand bottled magnums. These magnums are exclusive to Cellar Door and alphaboxdice.com and were hand bottled by our winemaking and Cellar Door team at our McLaren Vale winery. A rare collectors item for any AB&D fan.

Golden Mullet Fury is our signature ‘orange’ wine, where we take red winemaking principles and apply it to white grapes. This is a winemaking tradition that, like the mullet hairstyle, comes and goes into fashion, but has been around for millenia. The result is textural and bold, with a balance between stone fruit and savoury flavours. Chill it down and serve with friends in the sun this Spring.
