Description

Established in 1971, Rockford's vintage shed is equipped with plant that is from 50 to 100 years old and was discarded by other wineries as modernisation took over. This allows Rockford to carry on old winemaking traditions and craft wines that capture and reflect the vineyard's characteristics in a timeless fashion.
Moppa Springs, Ebenezer and Kalimna are some of the driest areas in the Barossa where green vines grow on one side of the fence and ripened wheat on the other.
This hard country is cold, wet and frosty during pruning - then hot, dry and dusty during harvest: the kind of tough conditions that ensure Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro give their best.
These varieties and the families who grow them earned the right to represent the Barossa in this blend by surviving for more than 150 years when others could not.
Bottle ageing the wine for two to three years will give it a chance to clearly show its Barossan birthright.
