Overview

Marty’s resounding philosophy for the Mojo wines is simple "the wine should tell a story about what it is and where it's from, showcasing what the growers do best and nurturing their hard work with minimal winemaking intervention." This philosophy has stood him in good stead, with a host of accolades for the Mojo portfolio.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Straw yellow with a faint rose pink hue.

Aroma

Lifted floral honeysuckle notes, sweet allspice, a hint of marzipan and a waft of smokiness.

Palate

Smooth, rich palate of fleshy red Anjou pear and stone fruit, displaying traces of mild spice and a juicy, sweet texture. This succulent character advances throughout the unctuous mid palate further elevated by a mealy creaminess from the lees stirring and a trace of toastiness from barrel fermentation. The balanced, mineral acidity provides structure and leads to a lengthy dry finish.

Food Matching

Seared scallops served with shaved fennel and orange or unpretentious salmon sashimi.

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.
