Rockford Alicante Bouchet 2020
Rockford Alicante Bouchet is an aromatic and light rose wine. Opens with a full nose of berry and cherry aromas. Juicy, fruit driven and dances on the palate thanks to its zippy acidity and light body. A sweet appeal thanks to the strength of red fruit flavours, closing in a pleasant finish that is dangerously enjoyable.
100% Alicante Bouschet. Alicante is genetically linked to the Grenache variety, so it too is well adapted to the warm Mediterranean climate in Barossa Valley. As a variety, Alicante Bouschet ripens to low levels of natural sugar, which results in a wine of low alcohol. Since the flesh of this distinctive variety is bright red in colour, there's no need for the skins and juice to sit together to extract colour and flavour before pressing. The wine is handmade using equipment from the turn of the last century.
