Rockford Basket Press Shiraz 2004

Winery: Rockford
Region: Barossa Valley
Wine: Basket Press Shiraz
Variety: Shiraz
Vintage: 2004
UOM: 750ml

"Aromas of plum, raspberry, Turkish Delight, milk chocolate and leather with a tasteful application of vanilla oak. Medium to full bodied palate. Not a blockbuster by any means. There are flavours of berry, plum, milk chocolate and leather. Smooth fine tannins and a beautiful supple texture. Long berry and leather finish. Right up there with my two favourite BP vintages – ’99 and ’96. No shame in opening one now either, although a third of a bottle hardly moved when left overnight. 96 Points/Drink 2006-2016+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

"We have a beautiful wine on our hands here. It is the best Basket Press Shiraz since 1999. I’m one of those people who loves the pants off Rockford in the Barossa Valley, but who also feels as if the standard hasn’t quite been what it once was over the past four or five years. It’s been good, but not the superstar we all know it to be – it hasn’t dropped, it’s just taken a bit of a buffering, to my taste. The 2004 takes that bad attitude of mine and puts a cork in it. It’s got a beautiful nose, a beautiful palate, a beautiful frame of tannin, and succulent, smoochy length. I could kiss this darling all night long, and God how I wish that I could – every night. Barossa shiraz – you know the flavours. Low oak, black fruit, coal and earth. Once you finish each mouthful, it still feels like it’s got a firm, mesmerising grip on you. One sip, and there really is no escape."

96 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
