Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz 2020

Love these “Blue Boys.” Mollydooker (Aussie for left-hander) Wines was established in 2005 by Sarah and Sparky Marquis. Dark Ruby with dark berry fruit aromas adding sweet spice and cedar. On the palate this wine has complex flavors of blackberry and blueberry with licorice, cacao, oak and vanilla. Fine dusty tannins, peasant mouthfeel (16% Alcohol), full-bodied, long ending with a nice spicy finish. Aging well, good now, has room to run over short term. — 17 days ago

Basket Press Barossa Valley Shiraz 2020

Another amaaazing wine here in Down Under. The Basket Press only available to the ‘in’ members of Rockford winery. Rich flavors expressing from beginning to end in layers of dark, ripe fruits but firmly anchored by well rounded, soft tannins that carried the experience to a long lingering, pleasant finish. We had lunch with our friend who happened to ‘in’ 😊 with Rockford hence our opportunity to taste this wine and share it with other friends who had been admiring Rockford wines for 40 years. — a month ago

@Jan de Weerd are they still bottling single vineyard Shiraz in great years?

I am not sure Ira. I think they produce the basket press every year, selected from several barrels from different vineyards. I don’t think they are all estate vineyards either. But, again, not sure. Fantastic wine however. They are also making some fun wines using Alicante Bouchet, like a red ‘white’ wine and then use the pressed skins to coferment with a Grenache/Mourvèdre blend to give it a nice spicy tanniny backbone and call it the ‘frugal farmer’ 😁
