Rockford Frugal Farmer, Southern Rhone Blended, Barossa Valley
Rockford Wines feature high quality traditional wines made from some of the best old Barossa vineyards. the brand 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. 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 Shiraz but less expensive.
