Description

A blend of Grenache, Mataro and Alicante Bouschet. When we make our Alicante Bouschet each vintage the skins of the grapes are not needed. Instead, we co-ferment them with early picked Grenache and Mataro to make our Frugal Farmer. The addition of the Alicante skins to the ferment gives tannin, spice and a vibrant garnet colour to the wine. We think this resourcefulness would get a quiet nod from the early Barossa pioneer families and you get a light-bodied, lower alcohol, wine to enjoy. Win-win! The Frugal Farmer is medium bodied yet full flavoured and is lower in alcohol than many other red wines. The 2018 vintage of this wine particularly stands out for its striking bright garnet colour, outstanding structure and mouthfeel.

- Winemaker’s Notes

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.
