In 1999, Franc Rocca and family converted a former cow paddock to a state-of-the-art winery and established Rocland Estates.
The small family-owned wine company started as a storage facility catering for Yalumba Wines.
Today they produce wines for a number of smaller independent wineries and created the iconic Chocolate Box range. The essence of Barossa, these wines would grace any restaurant list or quality wine merchant.
The Rocca family’s easy-going European nature, together with their experienced wine making team, combines to make Rocland Estates a staple for food-friendly, approachable wines.
The Chocolate Box brand from Rocland Estates stems from their desire to recreate the expectations and desires that occur when someone opens a mixed box of chocolates; never quite knowing what the flavours will be, and being surprised at what the taste and experience will provide.
They have created that experience with their selection of wines from Chocolate Box and the wines have proved so popular that our customers keep on coming back for more. With vintage-inspired labels and eye-catching use of colour, Chocolate Box wines really stand out from the crowd and have fast become a very popular range of wines.
Chocolate Box Semillon Sauvignon
This wine is very pale in colour, but the aromas are anything but understated, zooming out in full floral, orangy Muscat
character. It is soft and sweet, balanced by citrussy acids on the finish.
CBhlaoncco/lSaetme iBloloxn Sauvignon
This wine is pale straw with light lemon sheen. It has a nose of fresh sweet peach, nectarine and melon. The refreshing palate gives an explosion of tingly fruit, and a well balanced acid and citrus fruit finish. Passionfruit and melon aromas with a refreshing, crisp citrus palate. A great partner to the other wines in the Chocolate Box range.
Chocolate Box Cabernet Sauvignon
Ripe blackcurrant is beautifully balanced with subtle vanilla, cassis and minty chocolate to leave a long rewarding finish.
Chocolate Box Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro (GSM) (Cherry Chocolate)
This blend of 36% Grenache, 34% Shiraz and 30% Mataro has savoury oak, dark cherries and stewed rhubarb which dominate the wine. The palate has spice and cinnamo revealing a delicious, lingering finish.
Chocolate Box Shiraz
Strong aromas of coffee, chocolate, blackberries and spice fill the glass, supported with sweet vanilla oak. A long, silky, smooth finish awaits all...
