Overview

We take the full complement of liberties with the Pinot Gris crafting it in the Alsatian style with lower acidity, rich and full bodied. I love the way the barrel fermented parcels mingle with the fruit on the palate enhancing the spicy pear notes; how the small amount of residual sugar carries the fleshiness of the fruit and the abundance of texture that evolves from the lees stirring. It makes for a great food wine where you want the texture and substance of the wine rather than relying on an overabundance of flavour to compliment a dish rather than clash with it.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

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

Palate

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.

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.
