2013 Rocco Shiraz

2013 Rocco Shiraz

Tasting Note

The Rocco is sourced from two separate vineyards at Mt Torrens and Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills.  We make the finest selection from individual barrels that exhibit the best varietal character.

This elegant Shiraz wears its’ cool climate origins proudly, delivering bright cassis and blackberry fruits on the nose, while the palate brings a balance of berry flavours, spice and fine tannins. Always a joy to blend from a selection of our very best barrels of the vintage; our Rocco Shiraz is an honest reflection of our place in the Adelaide Hills.

“Large in stature, humble by nature, our grandfather Rocco travelled halfway around the world to build a new life for himself and his bride in the Adelaide Hills.  He worked the soil of his Basket Range market garden tirelessly for many decades as his family grew and prospered.  His leap of faith continues to resonate, and he takes his rightful place in our Portrait Series as the one who embraced the pioneering spirit and, ultimately, determined our place in the Adelaide Hills”.
