Rockford “Rod & Spur” Shiraz Cabernet 2016


Rockford “Rod & Spur” Shiraz Cabernet 2016 is a uniquely Australian blend and this wine 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 eucalyptus 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 another 10 to 12 years. 2016 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
