Rockford “Basket Press” Shiraz 1998 (Museum Release)


Rockford “Basket Press” Shiraz 1998 sits amongst Australia’s most iconic and most sought after wines. This is a “Winemakers Release” (stored at Rockford) until July 2018, it has been perfectly cellared and ready to be consumed or put away in your cellar for a few more years to come. I tried this wine in July 2018…it is in such good condition. Chocolate, dark plums, coffee, spices…long and lush but seamlessly structured with slick black berry and silky tannins. It’s always well worth buying Rockford Basket Press Shiraz but this one, cellared so well, is a gem.

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
