The romantic name Rockpile can only be dreamed up by a farmer - in this case Mick Luckhurst - who refers to the rocky structured soils with this lovely moniker. It is this soil which contributes such character to this wine. Certainly the grape varieties give their mark to this blend, however, what makes this wine special is the place where it is grown; our unique soils at their northern latitude, in their desert climate. This wine is about place and structure; structure in the mouth, structure in the soil - the rocks!
