Rochford Wines Location & History
Rochford Wines is nestled at the foot of the Great Dividing Ranges in Victoria’s Yarra Valley. The Rochford story began in the hamlet of Rochford, on the northern slopes of Victoria’s Macedon Ranges. The original property was purchased by the Konecsny family in 1998. Less than five years later, a second 32 ha property and winery was established in the Yarra Valley.

This is not a GST blend (Grenache, Shiraz, Touriga) nor WRX (Welschriesling, Ribola, Xinomavro) but an MRV (Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier) – sounds like sportscar really, and perhaps it should be because this is super-slick and delicious. Perfumed...
Rochford is one of Cracka’s favourite wineries making top-end cool climate gems. The Lattitude Viognier is a delicious style with pretty aromatic fruit flavours. Creamy and beautifully textured it is seriously built to please. Love it!
No doubting the style here - it's a creamy, layered yet refined Chardonnay that cleverly straddles the classic richer style of Vic Chardonnay with that of the more minerally and delicate modern style to bring a rather well built wine of complexity...
