The name Rod & Spur acknowledges the contribution of our growers who spend the cold Barossa winters hand pruning their vines in the traditional rod and spur method. This wine is a return to the great Australian reds of the 1950’s and 60’s, when Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon blends dominated the premium market. This very Australian blend is not common in any other region of the world.
2019 Rod & Spur reflects an elegant balance between the cool, seasonal conditions and the generosity of flavour and earthiness that is synonymous with Rockford’s traditional Australian winemaking style.
Rod & Spur is a great example of the harmony Shiraz and Cabernet create together, a classic Australian wine that has the ability to bottle age for many years.
