Rockford “Rod & Spur” Shiraz Cabernet 2015


Rockford “Rod & Spur” Shiraz Cabernet 2015 sits among those great Australian Claret blends of the days of yor. It is a uniquely Australian blend and this is one of the best. The dark plummy hit of Barossa Shiraz sits beautifully with the ripe cassisiness of Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon. A lick of eucalypt sneaks through the palate with firm, yet supple tannin power. This is more elegant than some similar wines and isn’t bound up in new oak so I expect it will age well for 10 to 12 years. I think Rockford have been doing a great job with Cabernet recently and this blend shows it. 2015 was a very good vintage so to buy Rockford Rod & Spur is a snap.

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
