Tim Burvill was responsible for producing the super premium white wines portfolio during his tenure at Penfolds, winning many conspicuous medals and accolades along the way. RockBare is a creamy textured Chardonnay with alluring aromatics, generous flavour profiles and refreshing acidity. If you're tired of the politically correct styles of Chardonnay, then RockBare will be right up your alley. Delicious alongside your favourite recipe of scallops, supreme de volaille or creamily sauced, flat noodle pappardelle pastas.
Tim Burvill draws his insiration from the crisp Sancerre wines of France. His straight forward, low intervention winemaking techniques translate into solid Chardonnay wines with bold varietal definition and intense fruit. The same careful approach is taken in the vineyard. Grapes are harvested in the cool of the night just as the tropical flavours begin to appear. A completely wild, indigenous yeast vinification serves to enhance the aromatics, ferments are run very cool to retain valuable volatiles. A component of large format oak ferments reduce acid harshness while contributing complexity. Five months of lees stirring compliments the mid palate texture and contributes a rich nutty taste.
TASTING NOTES
Pale green hue. Pungent tropical and melon fruit laced with exotic dashes of kiwi and cashew. Stylish and elegant, the vibrant fruit drenches the tastebuds with a wave of intense pineapple, peaches and nectarine. The mid palate is textural with a bounty of creamy, mealy complexity derived from extended lees stirring. A balanced acid finish, crisp, lingering on notes of clean tangerine and lemon freshness.

About the Rockbare Winery
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»
