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. 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

Rated as Exceptional - the highest level - in the Langton's classification of Australian wines. A legendary Shiraz, sourced from a network of old-vine vineyards that were saved from being grubbed up by Rockford founder Robert O.Callaghan. A wonderful purple-red colour gives a sign of what is to follow: rich and hedonistic black fruit flavours, a silky, velvety texture and a savoury, fine tannin finish that will have you gasping for more. Basket Press is right at the top of the tree in Barossa Shiraz, putting more expensive wines in their place.

Produced with selected small parcels of old, dry grown Barossa Shiraz from nearly 30 of the Barossa’s finest grape growing families. The vineyards are situated in different subregions throughout the Barossa, which adds to the complexity and depth of flavours. The wine is hand made using equipment from the turn of the last century, then aged in American and French oak for two years. All this contributes to our objective to make the very highest quality traditional, soft, deep coloured, earthy Australian red wine which will bottle age.
