Region: McLaren Vale
Fear not, children of the grape, the Death Card heralds a transformation into a new state or regeneration and in this particular case, refers to a poorly farmed plot of Grenache which was brought back to life by the Alpha Box & Dice crew.
Through 10% whole bunch fermentation and six months maturing on lees in tank, Winemaker Sam has upgraded our old faithful Tarot to be “a little bit richer, bolder and more of the darker fruit spectrum… everything you loved, just maxed out”. The contrast between light and dark is still there, just as detailed and enchanting as ever.
“Tarot will renew your belief in Grenache and McLaren Vale”. Big claim? Maybe. But trust us, it’s a statement Tarot can live up to.
