Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines. Limited yields of immaculate fruit, artisanal winemaking by leading vignerons of the apple.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

There has been a slight, but significant refinement in the style of Moss Wood Semillon, but ultimately, it is the pursuit of excellence which determines the viticulture and handling of fruit. Grapes are hand picked and delivered to the winery, de-stemmed, crushed and pressed. The free runs are cold settled for two days, clear juices are racked into fermenters, a small portion of solids are reintroduced. Pure yeast cultures are added batches are vinified at 17C for a fortnight. Pressings are fined and settled, clear juices are racked and seeded for a separate, pure yeast fermentation. After a week of settling on gross lees, the two components are racked and assembled before a light fining, depending on vintage.
Medium straw colour, with green tints. Fresh fruit aromas of grapefruit, apples and fig. Strong notes of pear and musk, enhanced by background notes of caramel and lanolin. Classic Moss Wood Semillon, combining crisp acidity with full body and a slight firmness of tannin on the finish. The middle palate has ripe apple, fig and pear flavours giving a generous, almost sweet feel, despite the wine is pleasingly dry.
