Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden.

Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age.

Arakoon is the aboriginal name of a forest that was known to the indigenous people for it's proximity to water. Jones & Son are upfront about their penchant for Burgundy but what they do is completely McLaren Vale. They collate hand chosen parcels of Shiraz from good growers in the Sellicks Beach and Willunga districts, grapes are painstakingly handled and sorted. Foot crushing, boots on, is the practice, and for the most part all wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered. Parcels are inoculated and vinified in traditional open vats, treated to an extended maceration and gentle transfer through a hand operated basket press before maturation in a combination of French and American oaks.
Deep red colour. Aromas of chocolate and plum, lifted baking spice, mullberry and ground black pepper. An array of black berry and cherry flavours kept vital by bright morello acidity. Seamless integration between good fruit, velvet tannins and fine oak, a smoky depth and lick of vanilla spice linger right through to the savoury finish.
