95/100 James Halliday’s Wine Companion, October 2014 (2011 Vintage)
"Difficult season, but it's not a difficult wine. Fans of the label with some already stashed in their cellar can breathe easy. It's fuller in body than the season might have predicted, but more elegant than is usual for this wine. Blackberry, raspberry, coffee grounds, toast and vanilla fill it out, with herbs and peppers whispering through the finish. Tannin is the key: it's ripe, fine, marked by its finesse and yet determined to get its point across. Perhaps not a long-termer, but no doubting either its merit or drinking appeal. Drink to 2023."
93/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front (2011 Vintage)
"Well. It’s interesting. Rockford Basket Press Shiraz from a year that wasn’t exactly the easiest to grow grapes in. It’s much fuller than I was expecting. It’s sweet, curvaceous even, with mocha, toast and vanilla making the front running before blackberry, grenache-like raspberry, straggly herbs and pepper notes assert control. You wouldn’t necessarily pick it as from a cool, wet vintage; it tastes like a Rockford Basket Press Shiraz, first and foremost, though an elegant version thereof. Fine tannin, also, has been beautifully massaged into the wine, so much so that it’s a highlight. It’s not a great release, but it’s a long way from being a poor one either. It’s not the easiest wine to rate, but there’s a fair amount to enjoy here."
