Most people would be unaware that Cabernet Sauvignon has been planted in the Barossa since at least 1888. Barossa Cabernets are rich, full flavoured wines and are a perfect fit into the Rockford stable.
The fruit for this wine comes predominantly from vineyards along Rifle Range Road. The ‘Biscay’ soil of these vineyards is heavy clay, lending the wine its full flavour and earthy tones. The perfect wine to hide in your cellar, for as long as you are able.
The 2016 Rifle Range Cabernet Sauvignon looks cracking, and even though it’s only been bottled for a few months, it’s so approachable. The tannin at this early stage are silky smooth with enough structure to ensure its evolution will reward those who pull the cork in decades to come. – Source Rockford Rag, Spring 2018
