- Out of stock
Established in 1999, Franc Rocca and family converted a former cow paddock to a state-of-the-art winery, to be known as Rocland Estate. The easy going nature inherited from the Rocca family's European background, together with an experienced winemaking team, combines to produce food friendly, approachable wines from Rocland's vineyards and surrounding contracted vineyards.
Rocland Estate believes great wine is made from the vines, sun, rain and rich earth. The "Cherry Chocolate" Chocolate Box by Rocland Estates is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (Mourvedre or Monastrell in Europe) produced from Barossa Valley fruit. The exact blend varies by vintage. Deep russet red in colour, the nose shows earthy aromas of damp leaves and savoury oak, leading to ripe black cherries and stewed rhubarb. On the palate there's warm, controlled spice with some delicious cinnamon notes, over a robust, fruity Grenache body and a hint of sweetness. The finish is long - juicy fruit, winter spicy sweetness, soft and deep.
