Rockford Alicante Bouchet Rose 2017


Rockford Alicante Bouchet 2017 is beautifully candied red fruits, cherries, strawberries and floral on the nose. This is an essentially dry Rose but the electric colour gives you a clue as to its fruitiness. Cherry/berry, mulberry, cranberry crunch and candied raspberry dance through the palate. This is Rockfords most popular seller despite Basket Press being their most sought after cuvee but that’s a supply and demand thing. I would be happy to buy Rockford Alicante Bouchet by the dozens every year.

5 Star Winery – Halliday Wine Companion

“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).” – James Halliday
