Top Drops - Rock Riesling, Rock Shiraz blend reviewed in The Canberra Times - Feb 4 2007
Rock Riesling 2005, Rock Shiraz blend 2004 $12
Hanging Rock Winery’s Rock range gives cellar door visitors a real alternative to the discounted big-company brands offered in retail stores.
Riesling 2005 – a Strathbogie Ranges/Swan Hill blend – is a delicious dry expression of the variety and offers outstanding value at $12.
The most popular of the range, though, says Ann Ellis is the Rock Red 2004, a fresh fruity, medium bodied style with vibrant acid and fine soft tannins, It’s a blend of shiraz, pinot noir, malbec and grenache – strange but effective bed partners, in this instance.
The range includes, as well, merlot, rosé, semillon sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. Available at http://www.hangingrock.com.au/
