Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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. The intense power and complexity of Rockbare's resplendent range of wines are complimented by.. Precious & prodigal parcels of the barossa»

Claymore Bittersweet Symphony Cabernet CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec Clare Valley South Australia

Is it all about the quest for a healthy mind and healthy body, or is it something rather more indulgent that our physicians are practising? Clearly not a depraved effort by any means, Bittersweet Symphony is a poised and gracious Cabernet wine, brimming with Clare Valley elegance, endowed with fragrant perfumes, layers of clean berry fruit and sleek, cultivated tannins.

Claymore has achieved wide industry acclaim from peers and the wine show circuit. Disparate lots of parched fruit are high maintenance, but Claymore have never compromised in terms of quality. Unirrigated, the vineyard yields only small volumes of no more than two tonnes per acre, but this is more than compensated by the quality of the final wine. The underlying philosophy is to keep things fun, whilst practising an exacting attention to detail. Bittersweet Symphony has spent in excess of eighteen months maturing in a careful selection of new and prior use, predominantly French oak. Time in barrel gives the opportunity for the naturally pronounced tannins of the Cabernet to soften and integrate.
Deep crimson red with purple hues. Bright and lively aromatics of sweet berry, bramble and sour cherry dominate. The oak is subtle and lightly applied, showing as notes of cigar box and spice. All those bright fruits continue in the mouth alongside hints of white pepper and cocoa. The finish is all fresh raspberry rounded out by integrated silken tannin that builds gently, glass after glass.
