"When I started RockBare, my goal was to make pure and intense wines, using only varieties that are suited to growing in the cool, maritime climate of South Australia's McLaren Vale; Chardonnay, Shiraz and Grenache. These wine varieties are my passion, and McLaren Vale was the logical choice of region to pursue my dream. Six years down the track, and my heart still lies firmly with these noble varieties. Nothing more..... Nothing less." Tim Burvill - Winemaker

Winery Tasting Notes
Vivid purple with a violet hue.
A brooding nose reminiscent of mulled wine, loaded with spice, crushed mulberries and toasty charry oak.
Luscious, juicy palate of dark cherry and loganberry fruit provide up front supple fleshiness that gracefully integrates with elemental layers of rich mint chocolate, spicy clove, mocha, sweet vanillin, and a pleasant earthiness. The finish is generous with an abundance of mouth coating, chewy tannin and a warming touch of white pepper.
Well matched to a lamb hotpot, pan fried veal or a gem with a ploughman’s lunch.
