Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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

Discovered by Dr Bertel Sundstrup in 1987, after a long search for the perfect site, the amphitheatre known as Dalrymple is a mere twelve hectares of sun drenched bucolic idyll, at the very heart of superior viticulture on the beauteous Apple Isle. This is Piper's Brook central, a place of auspicious winegrowing climes, long hours of sunlight and extended ripening seasons, which yield fruit of remarkable succulence, gracious acids and satin tannins. Dalrymple are a small, unincorporated winegrowing concern, whose accord with the elements and devotion to the land, are best articulated by the leisured pursuits of their chief vigneron, whose favourite pastimes..

Kalleske Rosina Grenache Shiraz Viognier CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Shiraz Viognier Barossa South Australia
Anna Rosina, together with husband Karl Heinrich, established and farmed the Kalleske vineyard from 1853 until the 1880s. They were amongst the earliest pioneers in the salubrious Barossa winegrowing village of Greenock. Old vines still eclipse the property and a 1940s planting of Grenache forms the backbone of Rosina. A component of Shiraz and a dash of Viognier contribute wonderful complexity. A juicy, mouthwatering Rosé with plenty of fruit and a touch of restrained sweetness, from grapes harvested early in the season to capture vibrancy.
Available by the dozen

A completely hand crafted rose, vintaged and matured on the Kalleske property. All vines are hand pruned and planted to sandy loam soils over deep red clay. Grapes are harvested to a schedule specifically tailored for the creation of a Rosé wine, as they begin to display vibrant refreshing qualities with crisp acidity and solid flavour intensity. Following the crush, juices remain in contact with skins for a few hours to infuse subtle hues prior to pressing. Juices are wild yeast vinified in a combination of fermenters and oak for added complexity. Following a spell of maturation on sedimentery lees, a small amount of unfermented juice is added to impart a touch of natural fruit sweetness.
Vivid rose petal colour. Lifted floral perfume, musk, strawberry and freshly crushed raspberry aromas. The juicy palate displays vibrant, fresh fruit characters with a balanced acidity complimented by restrained grape sweetness. A creamy textural richness adds depth and character to a deeply flavoursome Rose as it resolves on a generous lingering finish. Enjoy with slamon steak, weisswurst or vietnamese cuisine.
