A beautiful Grenache blend from the legendary Barossa estate, Rockford. Not actually from Moppa, this classic but also complex red comes from typically superb vineyard sources. With dialed-back body but lots of interest and layering, this is another X factor wine from the most old-school of Barossa's boutique producers. Stocks are tiny -- so for this price, grab some!

Overview

Grape

Grenache, Mataro (Mouvedre) and Alicante Bouchet

Its Origins

"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). Ben Radford, whom I first met in South Africa some years ago, has been entrenched as Rocky's right-hand man, and is destined to take over responsibility for winemaking when the time comes for Rocky to step back from an active role." -- James Halliday

What The Critics Say

95/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, James Halliday

"Despite the time-honoured name, the grapes in fact also come from Ebenezer and Kalimna. In vintage Rockford style, deceptively straightforward when it is in fact very complex. Part of the deception comes from the modest alcohol, below the average, and all the better for that. It weaves freshness with savoury, spicy, earthy red and black fruits." Drink by 2035
