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.

From Don Lewis and Narelle King's Heathcote property, vinified alongside a component from a second choice Heathcote site. An early ripener, fruit is picked over the course of several days according to parcel ripeness and treated as a single batch once brought to the winery. Grapes are crushed and de-stemmed into a vinimatic fermenter and spun twice daily. Temperature and acid levels are constantly monitored throughout the vinification, upon completion the wine is treated to an air bag press. Racked off gross lees and transferred to barrel for a course of malolactic and maturation in a combination of new French oak and older barriques for a year.
Brilliant deep cherry red colour. Rich raspberries and cream bouquet with nutmeg and minerally notes. A fresh sweet palate, black cherries and a touch of tartness nicely balanced by chalky tannin, fruits burst over classic chalky tannin, well balanced by rhubarb astringency. Lingering prune plum flavours and great palate weight extend all the way to the finish.
