Big, bold, juicy with cassis and blueberries on the nose and molasses, chocolate and cherries on the tongue. Beyond all of that, ultimately it’s like being embraced by an enormous purple clam with blueberry chops and wobbly rubber Fgrape flavoured hands just before they throw you into a vat of fermenting blueberry pie. Willie Wonka’s Veruca Salt – eat your heart out!
A modern, cutting-edge collection of wines - just look at the labels - from the passionate and slightly bonkers trio of Dylan and Justin Fairweather and winemaker Sam Berketa. AB&D was founded in McLaren Vale in 2008 and is unconventional in its approach; there are no ‘regional, varietal or stylistic’ boundaries, just great wines from great fruit.
The plan is to craft a different wine for every letter of the alphabet - from Apostle (Shiraz-Durif blend) to Zaptung (crown-capped Prosecco). Each wine is unique and has a story and eye-catching label to go with it. A fab collection of wines that a causing quite a buzz in the wine scene.
The grapes are we destemmed, crushed and left for two weeks on skin, before letting the juice sit back and enjoy 24 months in barriques – one third new oak and the rest seasoned. The result is classic, approachable and expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Just like the icons that came before it.
Thick juicy steak or the perfect accompaniment for after dinner nostalgic narratives.
