Product reviews
Grapes are grown on the Leask Vineyard, McLaren Vale, a red clay soil site which is biodynamic, but biodynamic practises not carried through winemaking. Aglianico is a notoriously late ripener and isn’t picked until late April -early May. Grapes are de-stemmed and innoculated with neutral yeast. Extended maceration (extended time on skins) then the wine spends 36 months in seasoned oak and a further two year in bottle before release. It is a deceptive and complex wine, with more depth and tannin to the palette than how it appears in the glass. Perfume and spice on the nose follow through to velvet cherry palate.

Alpha Box & Dice is the new range for the eclectic range of wine projects by Justin and Emma Lane. The name came form the saying "The whole box and dice" which is an Australianism for "everything or complete". Justin Lane is the winemaker or as he likes to say "wine tragic" and Emma Lane is the business brains behind the operation. Justin and Emma originally hail from the Hunter Valley and have been"living in exile" in Willunga, SA since 1998. Justin spent his time in the Hunter working in vineyards for McGuigan Brothers as well as weekends at cellar door. Emma has extensive experince in restaurants having spent time mostly front of house for fine dining establishments such as Cyprus Lakes and d'Arrys Verandah.
