Rockford is a well known name in premium South Australian wine making. Their cellars and winery date back to the earliest settlers of the region. The vines are located in Krondorf due to its well draining, deep sandy loam. Many of the original vineyards are still in use today; producing some of the highest quality wine Australia has to offer. As a result, tradition features strongly in Rockford’s philosophy. This is even more evident by continued use of the old fashioned basket press.
Planted in 1978, the Home Black vineyard produces excellent quality grapes. The Rockford Home Block Cabernet Sauvignon is an intense and complex wine with great depth of flavour. Peppery blackberry and dark black currant transition in to liquorice, vanilla and coffee. Cedar and hints of smokey earth show on the palate. The tannins are well integrated and are at optimum ripeness. This wine is full bodied with well-balanced acidity and an outstanding length and power.
It is best to decant the Rockford Home Block Cabernet Sauvignon prior to drinking. This wine is a perfect match to roasted leg of lamb or alternatively to a Scotch fillet cooked to medium.
