Famous for being the rose made from the red grape with red juice, Rockford's Alicante Bouchet has reached cult status among Adelaide's rose drinkers.
Simple and confectionary, the 2009 Alicante Bouchet reveals a dirty nose of candied cherries, strawberry and kiwi fruit. Bound by sweet/sour edges its rather one dimensional palate presents predictable, candied red berry fruit flavours, ending short, sweet and dirty.
