  • Magenta, with a youthful purple hue. 93% Shiraz, 7% Roussanne

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Complex nose of dark fruit cake, cured meats, and fragrant spice, with a lovelylifted floral note attributed to the co-ferment with Roussanne. Fillet Mignon with Broccolini, or homemade pasta with wild boar ragu Pappardelle al Cinghiale!

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • When winemaker Tim Burvill decided to start Rockbare winery it was always his dream to make wines that were indicative of the region, these included: Chardonnay, Shiraz and Grenache. In 2001 Tim decided to go out on his own and formed the Rockbare label, he’s not looked back since. Tim grew up in Western Australia, but winemaking did not start until joining Southcorp and working with fruit from all over South Australia. Today Rockbare Wines is headed up by Chief Winemaker Shelley Torresan, with assistance from Peter Fraser. The Rockbare Cellar Door is based in the Adelaide Hills on the main street of the picturesque Hahndorf. The main building comprises a cottage built in 1845 - the perfect place to sample the wines of Rockbare. As well as the highly successful Rockbare brand there is the new project called Barossa Babe made from fruit sourced from 140-year-old vines.

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    The Rockbare brand is now co-owned by the Jackson Family and the Valmorbida Family. Interesting. It’s a brand I’ve never quite understood, so hopefully it will all become clearer with new ownership. This shiraz roussanne blend was aged in older French foudre. I don’t have percentages but roussanne seems to have a clear impact here. Maybe slightly too much impact, though these things often come down to personal preference. Darker berries, cloves, dry spices, a gently savoury aspect and a boiled lolly note. It gives both fruit sweetness and savouriness a kick. It can go without saying but there are gum leaf flavours here too; indeed they’re quite prominent. You certainly couldn’t quibble over the volume of flavour here, nor with its neat-and-tidiness.

    TONI PATERSON MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    Intense and generous with black fruit and marine accents. The densely-flavoured, fleshy palate has a rather rustic flavour profile with dark plums, mushroom and a little charcuterie. Good with charred lamb

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Very deep, dark purple/red colour with a walnutty, white-peppery, savoury bouquet, which is quite individual and different. Strange oak suspected. There is a little extractive, peppery bitterness on the finish which carries. Good intensity, but it is astringent.
