Rockford Alicante Bouchet 2020


One of the most popular wines in the Rosé style and often credited with re-establishing chilled reds as a quality alternative to white wine. Alicante Bouchet as a variety ripens to low levels of natural sugar which results in a wine of low alcohol, 10.2%.

The Alicante Bouchet is full of berry/cherry flavours which are slowly released as the wine adapts to room temperature. A juicy, fruit driven zippy light red. The strength of fruit can give it a slightly sweeter appeal and has a pleasant finish which can be dangerously enjoyable. Serve icy cold this summer.

5 Star Winery – Halliday Wine Companion

“Rockford can only be described as an icon, no matter how overused that word may be. It has a devoted band of customers who buy most of the wine through the cellar door or mail order (Rocky O’Callaghan’s entrancing annual newsletter is like no other). Some wine is sold through restaurants, and there are two retailers in Sydney, and one each in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Whether they will have the Basket Press Shiraz available is another matter; it is as scarce as Henschke Hill of Grace (but less expensive).” – James Halliday
