The Rockford winery emphasizes the romance of the good old days with antique tools in this spirit, but the wines in their characterful, unadulterated style fully in line with the times. Rockford's Basket Press Shiraz is considered a cult wine in Australia. As one of the top ten icons of old vines, it shows the incomparable flavor and typicality of the region as a highly expressive character wine.
Produced with selected small parcels of old, dry grown Barossa Shiraz from nearly 30 of the Barossa’s finest grape-growing families. The vineyards are situated in different sub-regions throughout the Barossa, which adds to the complexity and depth of flavors. The wine is hand-made using equipment from the turn of the last century, then aged in American and French oak for two years. All this contributes to our objective to make the very highest quality traditional, soft, deep-colored, earthy Australian red wine that will bottle age.
