"The fruit for this wine is from vineyards that are mature, low yielding, hand pruned and hand-picked - helping to maintain our link with traditional viticultural practices. Most makers of Eden Valley Riesling release their wines in the same year the grapes are picked. Luckily Rockford is not run by accountants, so we prefer to release ours with the complexity, palate weight and softness that comes from holding this wine in our cellars for a year or two before release."
Rockford is a small boutique wine producer based in South Australia's Barossa Valley. Founder and winemaker, Robert O'Callaghan belongs to a genre of visionary winemakers that include Max Schubert, Peter Lehmann, Jeffrey Grosset, Brian Croser and David Hohnen. His protégés include Chris Ringland and Dave Powell. Rockford wines have had a profound influence on winemaking philosophy and wine style in the Barossa. Providing the inspiration for a whole generation of winemakers 'the Rockford school' embraces the inherent qualities of old vine Shiraz: the physicality of winemaking where muscle and personal touch transform process into an art-form; the traditional tools of trade (basket press, open fermenter) and the complementary nuances of American and French oak maturation. Best known for their Basket Press Shiraz, Rockford also produces a handful of top-quality wines from old vine fruit sourced from selected growers across the Barossa Valley.
