Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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 sweet oak and gripping tannins, culminating in vintages of extraordinary flavour and exquisite..

Dominique Portet Fontaine Rose CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Shiraz Yarra Valley Victoria
Named for a stylized French stone fountain which stands outside the Portet wineworks, Fontaine is an entirely appropriate adjective for this effortlessly luscious wine. Fontaine Rose is tickled pink, the colour just blushes through the glass, a visually stunning wine with chic and panache, as designed by Monsieur Portet. Parcels of Yarra Valley Merlot and Cabernet infuse the wine with delectable flavours of mixed summer berry, a component of Pyrenees Shiraz adds a sprinkling of revitalizing spice to the lightness of the easy drinking pink style.

Dominique Portet calls Australia home, but his bond with Bordeaux cannot be broken. His family has been in the wine industry since 1780 and before. It is actually longer but any official records were lost during the revolution. The earliest remaining document dates back to 1720, relating to the sale of Eaux de Vie by the Portet family to Martell. Fontaine is sagaciously fashioned to emulate the French penchant for leisurely drinking, where Rose sipping is venerated as the most rejuvenating pastime. Savouring a chilled, blush coloured wine on balmy evenings is considered de rigueur amongst the bon vivant of Provence, it's now an essential part of today's relaxed Australian lifestyle.
A blushing, rose coloured wine. Scented with plum, cherry, jujube and spice characters, made complex by lighter fragrances of biscuit and confection, rosewater and glace. A mouthful showing fruits of the forest and spice, ripe black cherry, blueberries, red apple and stalk. Delightfully fruit driven in moreish styling, a fresh, elegant wine with a superb red berry fragrance and delicious drying, savoury finish.
