Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west.

At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard.

O'Leary Walker is the culmination of two like minded winemakers. David O'Leary worked for Heemskerk and Chateau Reynella, he was group red winemaker for Hardy's and later at Mildara Blass. He held senior winemaking roles at Quelltaller where he launched Annies Lane. Nick Walker took up residence at Krondorf for sixteen years and was also at Yellowglen and Yarra Ridge. Cabernet grapes are destemmed but not crushed, into two and four tonnes fermenters. Natural yeasts are added as the ferments are hand plunged and pumped over to control temperature and flavour. Upon completion, batches are macerated, pressed and run into small French oak hogsheads for two years maturation.
Deep brick red, dark purple hues. Fragrant perfumes of blackcurrant, cassis and juicy berry fruits, a hint of cedar and spice. The contrasting influences of Armagh Valley and Polish Hill form a synergy, violets and blueberry, a palate of dark currants and bramble exhibiting great depth and length. A very solid Cabernet, rich yet restrained, elegantly poised over fine grain tannins, a style which Clare Valley is renowned.
