A tremendous red emanating heat from it's weight of alcohol, the very first vintage of a mostly Grenache wine by RockBare, sourced from an eighty year old bush vine, dry grown vineyard. You can't pass a duck with this wine, or a piquant chorizo sausage & homemade pasta dish.
Tim Burvill is a raider of old vines, one of a breed of swashbuckling winemakers who scour the beaten roads and inaccessible terrains of the McLaren Vale for long forgotten and unviable sites that bear the most precious of old vines. Generations of winemakers have recognised the McLaren Vale's unique ability to grow deeply coloured and intensely flavoured grapes. Tim has reverted to a trusted formula in his quest to create the definitive Rhonesque red. 71% Grenache, 16% Shiraz, 13% Mourvedre. Rockbare was treated to barrel matured for fourteen months, 8% one year old French oak, 11% two year old French oak, 26% three year old French oak, 55% four year old French oak. Alcohol 15.5%
TASTING NOTES
Crimson in colour. The wonderful, comforting smells of yesteryear, pink musk notes of the lolly jar, clove spices from the cupboard, and home baked rhubarb pudding. Scents of dry leaves and lemon tree, the dusty wooden box smells from Grandpa's old workshop are here too. Extra fine tannins arise after each mouthful, leaving the drinker with impressions of dark chocolates and warm, sweet alcohol.

About Rockbare Wines
RockBare was born out of Tim Burvill's desire to create his own wine from fruit grown to Australia's best viticultural regions
Growing up in Western Australia, Tim's interest in wine was sparked at a young age by frequent summer holidays to the Margaret River region. He fell in love with the world of wine, his passion eventually saw him move to South Australia, where he completed an honours degree at Adelaide University's Roseworthy Campus. His first job was with Southcorp, which as Tim puts it "was the best start to a winemaking career that anyone could ask for." For the next 5 years Tim worked with Southcorp, travelling the country plying his craft in the Coonawarra (Wynns) and the Barossa Valley (Penfolds), the Sunraysia and the Riverland, refining his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the country. A rapid rise through the 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. Rockbare»
