Overview

An iconic Barossan Shiraz, this is such a charismatic wine. The story here is all about the relationship between old school Barossa grapegrowers and suitably old school Barossan winemaking. The net result is a hearty, worthy, full flavoured of charm and depth. Icon wine indeed.

Expert Reviews

99 Points. James Halliday - Wine Companion. 1 Augu 2018

Quintessential Basket Press, bowing to no passing fad or fancy, the high-shouldered, brown glass bottle with Rockford Wines embossed on its base and the distinctive label that will never change because it's so perfect. It's a manifestation of the wine it contains, always very good, this vintage outstanding. I taste well over 5000 wines per year for the Wine Companion, and am never tempted to swallow during a day-long tasting session - well, this wine was the exception to prove the rule. Its balance, mouthfeel and silky purple and black fruits are perfect.

Winery Profile

Rockford - The wines are sold through Adelaide retailers only (and the cellar doo) and are unknown to most eastern Australian wine-drinkers, which is a great pity because these are some of the most individual, spectacularly flavoured wines made in the Barossa today, with an emphasis on old, low-yielding dryland vineyards.
