Wine Summary Image

Uniquely Australian, it’s loaded with rich ripe fruit flavour and very fine tannin – it’s a big old fashioned red that will put a smile on the faces of all those who drink it – but the biggest smiles will belong to those who are patient enough to put it away in the cellar for ten years.

Writing the description for Basket Press is always the hardest – too short a description would be doing the wine an injustice, too long and I might bore you to tears. Feeling curious, I typed basket press (not including the name Rockford) into a search engine on the internet. After a few clangs, whistles and whirs (Malcolm’s good old NBN) up popped hundreds and hundreds of references – to Rockford Basket Press Shiraz!

It’s funny how, being so close to this wine, I sometimes lose sight of just how special it is to so many people. I love being reminded. What this wine represents is so much more than the liquid in the bottle. For me, it represents an era when things were crafted, when winemakers accepted that making wine took time; that it could not be rushed. There were no short cuts and the price of production was exactly that, not something that the numbers people cut to the bone every year.

Basket Press Shiraz represents a region, state and country that is proud of its winemaking heritage and wears it as a badge of honour. Yes, it’s labour intensive to make wine like this, and yes, we can only make so much wine in our tiny winery using equipment that is over 100 years old. To compromise any of our core principles would be like tearing out the heart that makes this business tick.

Produced with selected small parcels of old, dry grown Barossa Shiraz from nearly thirty of the Barossa’s finest grape growing families. The vineyards are situated in different sub-regions 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. – Source Rockford Winery

Winery Profile

Rockford - The wines are sold through Adelaide retailers only (and the cellar doo) and are unknown to most eastern Australian wine-drinkers, which is a great pity because these are some of the most individual, spectacularly flavoured wines made in the Barossa today, with an emphasis on old, low-yielding dryland vineyards.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
