Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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

There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands,.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»
Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born.

From a choice site in Adelaide Hills near Echunga, off vines planted to well drained, granitic soils, 410 metres above sea level. Fruit is completely hand harvested and placed into small, traditional open top fermenters. A component of whole bunches is introduced, vintage permitting, to initiate partial carbonic maceration, extract fine stem tannins and enhance complexity. Temperatures are kept between a wide range of 15°C and 34°C throughout a fortnight of vinification, while treating the ferments to cap management regimens of hand plunging and pumpovers. The finished wine is treated to a extended term in a selection of seasoned and new, large format French barrels and smaller oak puncheons.
Deep purple red colour. Highly perfumed, vibrant and complex, floral notes of violet and dried herb, red currants and hints of black liquorice. Juicy black fruits with a measure of peppery spice over gently integrated dry, earthy tannins.
