The long awaited results for the Halliday Wine Companion 2017 are out –with leading Australian wines tasted and the notes and ratings finally released last Wednesday, August 4 at the Halliday Wine Companion 2017 Awards Dinner. Of very special mention is the Rochford 2015 ‘Premier’ Pinot Noir - which was awarded 98 points, and puts it on equal points as one of the top three Pinot Noir in Australia.

For several years Rochford Wines has consistently retained the Top Five Red Star rating placing them in the top 10 precent of the Australian wine industry. This consistency is again reflected in the outstanding scores as listed for the following wines.

2015 Rochford Terre Chardonnay 97 points
2015 Estate Pinot Noir 96 points
2015 ‘L ‘Enfant Unique' Pinot Noir 95 points
2015 Estate Chardonnay 95 points
2015 Estate Rose 95 points
2015 Latitude Chardonnay 94 points
2015 ‘Dans les Bois' Pinot Noir 94 points

"To receive these ratings from Australia's pre-eminent wine authority and to be acknowledged as one of the top Australian Pinot Noir producers is a great honour. We proudly aim to make wines that reflect the unique characteristics of this region and terroir and are thrilled to be recognised in this way - huge congratulations must go to Chief Winemaker Marc Lunt and Viticulturist John Evans", said Rochford Wines owner - Helmut Konecsny.
