Like most winemakers, I know that the quality of the wine in the glass is decided by the quality of the fruit in the vineyard. For Barossa Babe, I use only grapes from old vines. Not 20 or 30 years old. I'm talking seriously old, perhaps some of the oldest vines in Australia, up to 140 years old!

So, why Barossa Babe? Well, this wine was my secret project. How could I turn my back on such brilliant old Barossa vines. The opportunity was irresistible! I love it... and I'm thrilled to introduce to you my 'Barossa Babe.' Tim Burvill - Winemaker

Winery Tasting Notes

Much of this wine is made from 140 year old Barossa Valley Shiraz vines. The intense power and complexity of this creation from Mother Nature will continue to improve in the bottle over the next 15 years or more.


Violet red with a ruby hue.


A fragrant measure of archetypal Barossa earthiness, black cherries with wafts of leather, spice and mint.


A supple palate full of dense dark berry fruit and stewed plums, delivered with rich mouth-coating veins of rum and raisin chocolate, toasty oak and nutmeg/mace like spice. The harmonisation of the fruit and textural elements allows this primary expression of the vineyards to extend out of the mid palate. Finishing with a firm backbone of lingering dry tannins and a warm satisfying finish.

Winemaker Tim Burvill

Growing up in Western Australia, Tim's interest in wine was sparked at a young age by frequent summer holidays to the Margaret River wine region. This passion eventually saw him move to South Australia, where he completed an honours degree in winemaking at Adelaide University's Roseworthy Campus.

His first job out of university was with Southcorp, which as Tim puts it "was the best start to a winemaking career that anyone could ask for." His role as winemaker saw him make wines in regions as diverse as the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, the Sunraysia and the Riverland. A rapid rise through the winemaking ranks soon saw him vested with the responsibility at the age of 25, of making Southcorp's ultra-premium white wines, including Penfolds Yattarna.

In 2001, Tim decided to follow his own path and began RockBare, focusing on Chardonnay and Shiraz from South Australia's McLaren Vale.


South Australia's first vineyards were established in the 1830's. Enjoying a wide range of climates including the cool temperatures of the Adelaide Hills, to the hot summer weather of the Barossa Valley, South Australia is arguably Australia's most diverse wine producing state.

It is from these wonderfully diverse regions that Tim Burvill selects the best varietals to produce Mojo wines. Mojo wines are in keeping with Winemaker Tim Burvill's power-packed fruit driven style.

Mojo was once referred to as a magical charm or amulet containing special powers. It was these supernatural powers that protected from evil or crossed conditions and evoked the bringing of good karma.The secret of our Mojo lies in its ‘magnetism’, with funky branding and great wine.
