Rochford Wines is delighted to announce the results achieved for their Rochford 2015 ‘L’Enfant Unique’ Pinot Noir in this year’s 2016 Sydney Royal Wine Show Awards. Announced Thursday 28 July, 2016, the Yarra Valley winery proudly claimed the Geoffrey Crundall Perpetual Trophy for best Pinot Noir, along with winning a Gold Medal for their 2015 Dans les Bois Chardonnay at the 2016 Sydney Royal Wine Show Awards.

The grapes for this single vineyard Pinot Noir are grown at our Hill Road Vineyard in Coldstream, Yarra Valley and were handpicked on 13th February, sorted, partly de-stemmed (50% whole bunch) to open fermenters with short cold soak, natural fermentation and pressed to French Oak (20% new). The wine then spent 10 months in oak, racked off lees just prior to bottling. This wine was unfined and unfiltered.

Rochford Wines owner Helmut Konecsny is delighted with these results, "to win this Trophy in such a prestigious National Wine Show 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 - congratulations must go to Chief Winemaker Marc Lunt and Viticulturist John Evans".
