Rochford Winery Review – Yarra Valley – Australia
Rochford Wines Review
Rochford Wines is a winery located in the picturesque Yarra Valley in Eastern Victoria. They produce an extensive range of wine, have cellar door tastings and sales, and also have a restaurant on site. With its proximity to Melbourne, the Yarra Valley is a great place to go for an escape from the city.
My wife and I were at Rochford wines for the hot air balloon experience accompanied with a champagne breakfast to follow. The hot air ballooning was extraordinary and we had developed a hearty appetite after our voyage. We were welcomed with Rochfords sparkling rosé that continued to flow throughout our entire breakfast.
I opted for the smoked trout, poached egg and fish roe on sourdough. The dish contained a hot smoked fish that has a more cooked consistency to traditional smoked fish, but as a result it’s heartier. The fish roe was also surprisingly large and lacked the true refinement that one may find when eating good caviar. The breakfast wasn’t bad overall, but due to the nature of the fish and the bread, it was a bit on the dry side and would have benefited from the addition of a sauce.
The meal was tasty and the bread was fresh. The wine also flowed freely, so it was a good way to top off a memorable morning.
