    July 6, 2020 - Decanted 2 hours. Pretty much Medium bodied. Very good/balanced ripeness of fruit, detecting a slight savoury note to the wine also, with black berry, plum, dark cherries, a touch of vanilla, and what I call the signature Rockford 'charry' oak in the back ground. The acidity is providing some youthful freshness to the wine. Just a touch of drying tannin on the end of a nice long finish. A very good wine. Will continue to develop over the next 5-10 years, longer for well stored bottles.

    June 7, 2020 - Rockford 2010
    Clear medium red with a dash of purple. Cork even and 1/8 up.

    Still quite tight, but the oak has absorbed right in to the wine leavings lovely medium weight and pure Barossa. A touch rustic, but that is the style.

    Crunchy and fresh black fruit, red earth and pepper flavours balanced with fresh acidity. It has good length, a touch of alcohol noticeable but does not detract for me but others commented and I can see it.

    Still has a way to go. Drink next bottle in 5 years to avoid giving that alcohol burr any more space to dominate. 3.75 out of 5 or 92.

    May 15, 2020 - On the nose, a spicy, bell pepper note. Ever so slightly green, but not unpleasant, and inviting. On the palate, Fleshy plum fruit, with more pepper. Tannins are muted but elegant, alcohol is high but in balance with weight of fruit. Unmistakably a full bodied Shiraz, but with elegance. Acidity still high so this will go further. Still primary/secondary so I’d say this has got 5-10 years development if you want more tertiary flavours. But drinking beautifully now

    January 26, 2020 - Let it sit in a decanter for 2-3 hours if having a look at age 10. Felt a little porty and flabby on opening, then morphed in to a lovely medium to full bodied dry Barossa with a hint of leather starting to emerge but still plenty of vital red fruit, acidity, and drying tannins. Now to 10 years depending on how you like your BP.
