Rockford always release the Riesling with a few years age but the style really benefits from a few more years. Candied limes and white flowers are complemented by biscuity/meally, chalk and oystershell notes. The palate has good weight and clean acid. Lovely drinking.
One of Australia’s greatest Estates. Crafting wines from their Barossa base that reflect the region and its philosophy. They are best known for their old school and long lived ‘Basket Press Shiraz’ and their majestic ‘Black’ Sparkling Shiraz. But to focus exclusively on those would diminish the quality of the whole range of authentically and proudly Barossan wines.
Eden Valley – Perched high above the Barossa, the Eden Valley gives a cooler and longer season compared to the Barossa and therefore makes more elegant and aromatic wines. Blending between the two regions is quite common to get the best of both worlds. Shiraz and Riesling excel in the Eden Valley.
Riesling – One of the world’s most noble varieties and known transmitter of terroir. Riesling is an important variety for quality wine production although only makes up approximately 4% of the planted area. Wonderful wines are found in Germany, Austria, Alsace and Australia. They can be as dry as any wine you’ll taste or super sweet and luscious. It is a wonderful grape. See more about Riesling here.
