Alicante Bouschet is a real hidden gem for lovers of big, powerful, fruit-driven red wine. This often overlooked grape came into existence through careful scientific experimentation, and with its distinctive red-flesh means drinkers will probably have to contend with purple teeth after a glass or two! Expect juicy flavours of black cherry, bramble and plum.
