Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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

Dalrymple Single Site Coal River Valley Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Coal River Tasmania
Coal River Valley is most conspicuous for disappointingly low rainfall and punishingly dry winds. Dalrymple conducted an exhaustive search of the region to find a choice site offering excellent moisture retention under the lee of protective trees. A mix of whole bunch and destemmed grapes are treated to a week of wild indigenous yeast ferments and frequent pumpovers, drained and pressed to an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak hogsheads for a term of age. A beguilingly beautiful wine, open before service and allow the layers of complexity to unravel.

Deep crimson, purple hues. Pretty blue florals and dried herb, an immediate wave of Asian spice, cinnamon and cloves lift from the glass, sour cherries, blood plum and rose petals pink, savoury notes evolve after hours of opening, riper fruit. The richness of palate sings with lift and freshness from a fine acid line, concentration of fruit and fine acidity gives, persistence and length to the finish.
