Established in 1971, Rockford's vintage shed is equipped with plant that is from 50 to 100 years old and was discarded by other wineries as modernisation took over.
Although the wine shows typical varietal and regional characteristics, it also has the Rockford philosophy at its core - a rich, soft and full flavoured wine made using traditional wine making techniques and attitude.
"When we make our Alicante Bouchet Rosè, the grapes are pressed immediately and so the skins are not used. As the keepers of Barossa tradition, we couldn’t allow this to go on. Now, immediately after the juice is drained, we crush Grenache and Mataro onto the Alicante skins and ferment them together before finally basket pressing. The addition of the Alicante skins make a critical contribution to this wine, enhancing flavour, tannin and spice.
The Frugal Farmer is medium bodied yet full flavoured and is lower in alcohol than many other red wines. The 2020 vintage has a particularly striking bright garnet colour – with colour and concentration being the standout character of the 2020 vintage overall."
