Alicante Bouschet

Variety: Alicante Bouschet

From the 975 vines of the Alicante Bouschet variety and using the same production process as the red wines, Joachim Roque selected the best barrels to produce this special edition, a surprising wine. After 14 months in new French oak barrels, 3,200 bottles were produced, all numbered.
Tasting notes
