Overview

Our inaugural release of Mojo Chardonnay has the appropriate hallmarks to nestle comfortably into the Mojo range with a lively palate and a style that is very much approachable and drink now. The fruit was sourced from the higher altitudes and further reaches of McLaren Vale in order to ensure consistent full flavour as well as mouth watering, crisp acidity.

Our usual cautious approach was taken in monitoring the vineyards, waiting until those endearing tropical flavours appeared in the fruit prior to harvesting. The juice was inoculated with yeast that enhances the aromatics of the wine and ferments were run very cool to retain valuable volatiles. Four months of lees stirring was undertaken post fermentation in order to compliment the mid palate texture and also to give a slightly nutty complexity. In short it will ‘get your Mojo working!’

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Green straw

Aroma

Pungent tropical and melon fruit with traces of straw and toasted almond.

Palate

Vibrant, full fruit drenches the palate in the form of intense pineapple, passionfruit along with more exotic custard apple and a hint of apricot. The mid palate is textural and mouth filling with a host of creamy, mealy complexity derived from lees stirring. The balanced, flinty acidity compliments the rich fruit and provides support throughout the palate presenting a crisp, clean lime finish.

Food Matching

Serve lightly chilled with pan-fried flathead or baked snapper otherwise goes a treat with steamed Chinese chicken dumplings.

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.

MOJO

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.
