Barossa Valley Alicante Bouchet 2016

David T

This Alicante Bouschet grape comes from Languedoc, France. I believe it is the only grape to contain red juice inside. As most you may already know, red grapes have white juice inside and need skin contact during fermentation to draw out the wines red color. On the nose, light red fruits, roses, and not quite the Gamay bubble gum quality but it's close. The palate shows; bright raspberries, strawberries, cherries, bubble gum, soft, powdery chalkiness, high acidity but not overpowering, red roses and red florals for days. It's; bright, fresh, semisweet and delicious. — 13 days ago
