Rockford Shiraz Barossa Valley Basket Press 1999

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Aromatic and distinctive, with mint and cedar notes to tantalize the nose, weaving gamy flavors through the blackberry and spice as it all lingers on the firm-textured, sharply focused finish. Not as rich and gooey as usual for this Australian star. ... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 1999 Rockford Shiraz Basket Press 750ml

Rockford:
Rockford is a winery led by former Chateau Tanunda winemaker Robert “Rocky” O’Callaghan, based in the Barossa Valley, Australia. The wines have developed a huge following, known for their traditional methods and balanced styles. Some of the wines such as the Basket Press Shiraz, sold at the winery only, are in high demand and difficult to obtain, especially outside of Australia. 
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
