A Barossa expression of this classic Australian style. Reflecting the warmer conditions in this region, the Rockford balances Semillon's inherent acidity and lemony flavours with a lovely profile of riper fruit and creamy barrel influence. A unique wine of a reasonable price, the Rockford is one to try.

Overview

Grape

Semillon

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
