Overview

The inclusion of Cabernet into the range was a huge inspiration to me. There is no better region suited to Cabernet than the climate and rich terra rossa soil of Coonawarra. I love heading down to this region as it’s quite sentimental being that it reminds me so much of the countryside where I grew up in Western Victoria. Adding more sentiment is the fact that the big eucalypts throughout the area seem to leave their indelible mark on the wine itself with the same distinct character coming through, along with a throng of blackcurrant and mint. The pristine little berries we harvest each year gives me the ability to leave these parcels for a vast amount of time on skins, creating a serious amount of texture to compliment the flavour.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Violet red with a purple hue

Aroma

Distinctive herbaceous mint, blackcurrant,briar, tobacco leaf and a hint of spice.

Palate

Fleshy, vibrant up front notes of blackcurrant pastille and cassis, immersed in lighter dashes of cranberry and crabapple. fruit which seamlessly merge with secondary wisps of chocolate, almond, fresh mint and a lick of stalky high notes. Balanced ubiquitous acid imparts structural support and along with the cedary oak bestows bountiful texture by silkily meshing the palate together and neatly fusing with the ample, supple tannin which delivers a lengthy, dry, chalky finish.

Food Matching

Serve with minted lamb cutlets, mushroom loaded beef wellington or for the more adventurous roasted saddle of hare

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.
