An introductory release this Pinot Gris is made in the richer, spicier, higher alcohol style developed in Alsace. The fruit was sourced from the Northern edge of the Adelaide Hills which enables the fruit to ripen to a suitable sweetness whilst the cool nights help retain the natural, crisp acidity. Inoculation with aromatic yeast with ferments ran at cool temperatures in order to retain valuable volatiles.

Four months of lees stirring post fermentation and 2% barrel fermentation were undertaken in order to compliment the mid palate texture and complexity. We’ve done the hard work to guarantee this drop will go a long way to ‘getting your Mojo working!”

Winery Tasting Notes


Fragrantly if not floral nose of honeysuckle, spice, with a lift of marzipan and struck match.


Full, smooth palate of fleshy nashi pear and stone fruit, tinges of light spice and an underlying slate like complexity. The mid palate is unctuously textural with a nougat creaminess and richness, derived from lees stirring complimented by the tiniest hint of toasty character from barrel ferment. The balanced, mineral acidity provides structure and leads to a dry, firm finish.

Food Matching

Freshly shucked oysters on the beach to start, followed by Thai fish cakes and fresh mussels in a pot with white wine, garlic, chilli and corriander.

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.
