The 'Burvill' utilises the best fruit I can source from McLaren Vale in 2006 (a biodynamic vineyard from the Seaview sub-region), two years in a blend of new and aged oak, and finally a further two years maturing in bottle. With much anticipation I am very excited to finally release this wine to you as a symbol of my journey and love of Shiraz.

Expert Reviews

Big, warm-climate style, with the bouquet showing nice savoury elements. Similar palate, excellent flavour complexity, toasty oak and strong tannins. 4 stars & best of new release - WINESTATE MAGAZINE (SEP/2010)

Very good example of the velvet style that often emerge from the Vale lacking on the complexities to make it an intellectual drink enticing debate but held

Winery Tasting Notes


Black as midnight with vivid purple hue.


An enchanting nose of crushed mulberries, briar, lifted sweet vanilla bean with an intense waft of blackcurrant pastille.


A smooth, velvet palate loaded with sweet mouth-filling blackberry/bramble fruit, a savoury touch of tapenade, liberal splashes of chocolate and a pleasant toasty character. The palate is generously extended by lingering, fine liquorice tannins and warming touch of black pepper on the finish.

Food Matching

A versatile wine. Can be drunk with good company, served with a firm, mature cheddar. Will impress at a good old meat grilling session (ensure the steaks have plenty of marbling). If seeking solitude, dim the lights and gently let it numb your senses with your favourite music in the background…nothing else required.

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.
