Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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.

Crawford River Cabernet Merlot Franc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Merlot Henty Victoria
Completely dry grown and deliberately low cropped, the vines at Crawford River are stimulated by the chilly surrounds, to slowly ripen parched little berries with a concentration of flavour and the most elegant tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon is the primary black grape, meagre harvests of intensely flavoured fruit, layered with perfumed boysenberry and cassis richness. The holy trinity of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, framed by a measure of refined French oak, its velvetine plum and bramble nature makes Crawford River the perfect match to osso bucco or pink lamb.

Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Franc, are all hand picked and destemmed. Fruit is crushed and the musts are left to macerate for a spontaneous vinification through the action of wild, indigenous yeasts. Ferments are treated to regular hand plunges for optimal extractions. One component is sent for an extended term of maceration, another is richly barrel fermented for richness, mouthfeel and complexity. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for a course of natural malolactic in the following spring and twelve months maturation, followed by a coarse filtration prior to bottling.
Deep garnet colour. Luscious wafts of boysenberries, baking spice and blood plum introduce a lively, fruit driven wine. A balanced, mouthfilling palate is brought into focus with bright, refreshing acidity and a taut edge of mineral refinement. Feminine, subtle oak in support, complementing the fruit and enhancing the gentle spice. Excellent persistence to the finish.
