Description

Rockford Moppa Springs is produced in one of the driest areas in the Barossa, where green vines grow on one side of the fence and ripened wheat on the other. This hard country is cold, wet and frosty during pruning – then hot, dry and dusty during harvest: the kind of tough conditions that ensure Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz give their best.

Grenache supplies tangy sour cherry to this blend whilst Mataro offers a savoury cocoa note and Shiraz holds it all together with a backbone of fine tannins and a touch of brambly fruit. The wine is elegant and restrained with a subtle note of vanilla and pretty floral notes.

Established in 1984, Rockford is now in its 38th vintage and prides itself on being a traditional Australian winery. Founded by Robert O’Callaghan the winery is a family-owned Barossa institution using traditional Barossa varieties some of which have vines dating back to the 1880s. Much of the equipment also dates back over 100 years and this unique approach to heritage winemaking results in a range of wines which represent the pinnacle of quality that Barossa can produce.
