Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking.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.. Precious & prodigal parcels of the barossa»

Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s.

The enduring Wirra Wirra were established 1894, their eclectic range belies the splendour of small parcels which are separately handled and bottled for exclusive release. The Absconder draws fruit from vines planted a century ago, it merits a breathing and decant, an articulation about the sublime excellence of old vine Australian Grenache...

Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia
Distinguished Langtons Classification. For as long as Margaret River has been famous, it has been famous for Cabernet. Vasse Felix is the region's original winery and protagonist of the stately Cabernet Sauvignon genre. A measure of Merlot and Malbec can be added in varying proportions from vintage to vintage, softening the tannin profile and contributing perfumed, floral lift to the beautifully fragrant nose. The structure is fine and firm with a freshness of acidity that makes the mouth water. Rich, dusty tannins support a wine of great power, persistence and length.

The finest Cabernet Sauvignon from Vasse Felix in four decades? Every vintage is part of an evolution. A pioneer of the region, Vasse Felix first released Cabernet in 1972. Intense and statuesque, yet elegantly structured, it is the single most enduring Margaret River wine. Cabernet Sauvignon is a robust varietal that consistently achieves a high quality wine when grown to the Margaret River's temperate ripening conditions and deep, well drained soils. All parcels are vinified separately before eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and older French oak barriques, followed by individual batch selection and the final assemblage.
Deep maroon colour, slight purple hue. Stunningly complex perfume, exhibiting a level of integration that makes the wine difficult to pull apart. Layers of blackberry and blackcurrant mingle seamlessly with hints of dried herbs and candied orange. Fragrant, spicy oak sits beautifully in the background. Succulent blackberry and cassis fruit flavours provide a ripe density to the palate, oak spice adds a savoury edge.
