The Australian wine industry has been going through a very rough period recently. What this has done in my backyard, McLaren Vale, is free up some incredibly old and amazing Shiraz vineyards, which I have gleefully accepted into the RockBare fold. I really am amazed that in the six vintages since I started with RockBare Shiraz, just how many 50+ year old Shiraz vineyards I now have the pleasure of making my wine from.

If you're after a light red, then RockBare Shiraz is not for you. This is an old school, hang on to your hats, powerful gutsy McLaren Vale Shiraz. So, if you're looking for a juicy red to drink with a meal, or even the 'next red after dinner', then I think you'll like this one.

Winery Tasting Notes


Vivid purple with 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.

Food Matching

Well matched to a lamb hotpot, pan fried veal or a gem with a ploughman’s lunch.

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.
