Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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

Merlot lends itself ideally to wines of this style, intense fruit flavours and soft structure carry through to the finished wine following its secondary fermentation. Grapes are sourced from the Wilgha vineyard, a site which continually produces fruit with highly perfumed qualities, excellent structure and generous, fully ripe tannins. Fruit is picked at ripe Baumes, crushed and vinified on skins for six days in Potter fermenters. This base wine is then matured in a mixture of French and American oaks of varying ages for eighteen months. Secondary fermentation is induced by the addition of yeast and sugar, infusing a fine persistent bead, integrated toasty qualities and generous mouthfeel.
Vibrant purple with crimson hues. Clean and fresh aromas of violet, plums and blackberry are enhanced by dark chocolate notes. A wine of elegance and instant appeal, generously fruity with a predominance of plums, blueberry and raspberry flavours. Savour the mesmerising array of festive cake characters, a moreish wine and sophisticated indulgence, endowed with soft tannins, dulcet fruit flavours and vivacious effervescence.
