Had paired with steak in Sydney, and although possibly influenced by an incredible meal, I loved this big and fruity wine. The whole package - isn't that part of it??

In early June I visited the cellar door expecting to taste such a great wine. Unfortunately I found the 2006 very disappointing. Further research shows that the Basket Press can be eratic for different vintages. Some are great and this is where the reputation comes from. Unfortunately all the group I was with expected something magical, but all we got was an average shiraz.
Awsome.Awsome if you are lucky enough to have any of this wine in your cellar drink it and be very happy
Rock Ford 1994 Basket press Shiraz 12/10/09 This is black Shiraz dark as night; At first I thought this wine was corked, but a more experienced member of the tasting panel assured me differently, well he was right it took about half an hour for the pong to blow away. Good Pinot can smell of cow pad. Good Shiraz should not smell like shit I rest my case.
External Reviews for Rockford Shiraz Barossa Valley Basket Press
Opulentes Bouquet: reife Pflaumen und Anklänge an Mokka-Schokolade, gut strukturiert und ausgewogen mit allen Aromen dunkler Früchte. Gut integrierte, dezente Tannine und langer, fester Nachhall.
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
