Overview

Approachable, graceful palate of mulberry and blueberry compote, along with juicy plum driving the up front fleshiness which coalesce with a delightful melange of underlying notes of chocolate coated dark cherry, mint, toasty oak, spicy clove, earthy truffle and a hint of espresso. A solid backbone of supporting acidity extends these characters towards the wealth of mouth coating tannins, culminating in a soft, lingering raspberry licorice finish and a warming trace of black pepper.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep ruby red with a lovely youthful violet hue.

Nose

A enchantingly fragrant nose of fresh macerated berries entwined with sweet vanillin, mixed spice, cedar and a hint of perfumed violets.

Palate

Approachable, graceful palate of mulberry and blueberry compote, along with juicy plum driving the up front fleshiness which coalesce with a delightful melange of underlying notes of chocolate coated dark cherry, mint, toasty oak, spicy clove, earthy truffle and a hint of espresso. A solid backbone of supporting acidity extends these characters towards the wealth of mouth coating tannins, culminating in a soft, lingering raspberry licorice finish and a warming trace of black pepper.

Food Match

Suited to rare roast beef or kangaroo or makes a pleasant match to a grilled venison panini. Alternately take a load off and melt into the couch and pair with a mature cheddar cheese.

RockBare a showcase of the best of South Australia.

SHELLEY TORRESAN - WINEMAKER

Shelley Torresan grew up in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, surrounded by regional produce and it was only a matter of time before she developed a love of wine. She started her winemaking career at Adelaide University and completed her Bachelor of Agricultural Science in 1999. Shelley has spent time in Frances’ Northern Rhone Valley and Sonoma Country, California making wine. However, South Australia is where her heart is and so she has made her home in McLaren Vale at the Yangarra Estate winery where she makes the RockBare wines.

Her focus is to produce bright-fruited wines that are distinctive to the region and variety. As a result, the wines are approachable, young, fresh and vibrant, and fit our lifestyle of food, wine and entertaining.
