Affable Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from the large Rochford stable.

More than just affable, this is an affing bargain - it's medium weight, spicy and elegant, the gentle cherry fruit set in a wonderfully savoury form. 

Serious Pinot for this pricepoint.

Expert Reviews

92 Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine FrontLike this straight off, and sometimes, with Pinot Noir, you have to move your head around a little bit before you can catch clear sight of it. Anyway, it’s the structure I like most here, almost like a Langhe Nebbiolo in shape and feel of tannin, with its pleasing grip and dryness, in with that a mix of strawberry and red cherry, a little spice and perfume, and a shapely finish of fine length, a smattering of dried herb and orange peel on the finish. It’s a very good thing to drink.
90 Points - Ralph Kyte-Powell - Sydney Morning Herald
Huon Hooke - The Real ReviewBright, light to medium red colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet is clean and fresh, lightly spicy, with some dark cherry to blackberry notes. The wine is pleasantly weighted and flavoured with a slightly rough texture and a little clumsiness, and sappy tannins, but the value for money is unquestionable.

Bright, light to medium red colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet is clean and fresh, lightly spicy, with some dark cherry to blackberry notes.

Who made it?

This Yarra Valley property was purchased by Helmut Konecsny in 2002; he had already established a reputation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the family-owned Romsey Park vineyard in the Macedon Ranges (sold in 2010). Since '10, Helmut has focused on his Yarra Valley winery and vineyards. In addition to the cellar door, the property has two restaurants, a retail shop, and an expansive natural amphitheatre and observation tower - a showpiece in the region.
5 Stars - Halliday Wine Companion

Rochford wines is considered a showpiece for the Yarra Valley. This is due in part to its exceptional cellar door and restaurant set up, but also, and perhaps more significantly, because it's wine's set the standard for quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the cool climate region.

The wines are handcrafted using fruit sourced from four exceptional vineyards, and the single site wines produced from these vineyards are some of the finest expressions of the Yarra with beautiful balance and elegance. Their viticultural practices are based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions. The winemaking philosophy of Rochford is to produce the best fruit possible in the vineyard, handle the fruit gently to preserve fruit character, minimise extraction and allow the wines to express the individuality of the vineyard and each growing season.
