Rockford Rifle Range Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
"Cabernet Sauvignon doesn't just demonstrate resilience in cooler, wetter years - it thrives. It is a rare vintage when all conditions in the vineyard align - when they do it allows us to make the kind of wine that most closely represents the best of Australia's pioneer winemaking trade.
For our Rifle Range Cabernet Sauvignon, this is it. Record winter rains, ideal flowering conditions, a gentle growing season and above average yields resulted in an exceptional 2017 vintage.
When given the opportunity to make enought of this wine to set down and release over two seasons, we chose to take it. With an additional year spent in bottle, you'll be that much closer to pulling the cork on an earthy Australian red that richly rewards our shared patience. And every future release will now benefit for having another year under cork." James Fox & Holly Bousignac.
