The inaugural release and an exciting one to boot with this Cabernet Sauvignon slotting nicely into the Mojo range. Born from a very trying vintage this inaugural release established itself out of the wettest harvest in 37 years. Tireless work and great vineyard management ensured this fruit came through unscathed and more importantly for us, displaying both regional and varietal characteristics. Cold soaking, long slow ferments, extended maceration post ferment and some seriously good subtle oak has enabled hard work done in the vineyard to shine. With great colour, varietal charm and loads of flavour, this wine will seriously ‘get your Mojo working!

Expert Reviews

Winemaker Marty O'Flaherty says he picked the grapes early - I don't agree, he had them picked at exactly the right time. The wine has fabulous colour, and is brimful of juicy blackcurrant fruit, perfectly balanced by fine tannins. Whether anyone will get past the schizophrenic label (half wall art, half the most microscopic typeface, I don't know - if they do they will be richly rewarded. Rating 95 - Drink by 2027 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes


Varietal herbaceous mint, briar, tomato leaf, blackcurrant, dusty cigar box and a hint of sweet toffee.


Vibrant and youthful palate of blackcurrant pastille, wild berries and a lick of fresh stalky high notes meld with dark chocolate, a savoury touch of black olive and hints of nutmeg and cassis. Ubiquitous, taut acid and cedary oak provide a supportive backbone both bestowing structure to hold the palate together then deftly

amalgamating with the ample, supple tannin providing a lengthy, dry, chalky finish.

Food Matching

No brainer for a pink roasted leg of lamb with traditional mint sauce or use the same accompaniment with the less formal BBQ’d lamb short lamb and mint are perfectly suited.

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.
