2014  Shiraz

Region: McLaren Vale

Now to our hero…

An apex of the Alpha Box & Dice big reds, unrivalled in boldness, strength and power, Hercules is a gift from the heavens for those who seek rich tannins and dense fruit.

With Shiraz commanding utmost respect in the McLaren Vale region, Hercules muscles up as a full-bodied, maximum impact wine – ready to tackle any competitor and prove its might.

The AB&D winemaking team treat Hercules like any prize fighter; handcrafting it to be lean and honest, using small batch, minimal intervention and vegan friendly methods. Spending three years developing in new and aged oak, Hercules rises fresh and victorious from its slumber – ready to take on anything from a hearty meal to the Twelve Labours.

Dark, brooding and powerful, we bow our heads in silence and accept this elixir of the gods.
