Like so many other of today's leading young Australian winemakers Tim Burvill started his career at Southcorp. There he gained widespread experience making wines in both Coonawarra and the Barossa and in a very short time became responsible for making Southcorp's super premium white wines including Penfolds Yattarna. However, as a result of the merger between Rosemount and Southcorp in 2001 Tim lost his job. This provided him with a great opportunity to start his own venture - RockBare wines based in McLaren Vale.
The wine was matured for 14 months in a combination of 57% new American oak, 5% new French oak, 29% 1 year old American oak and 9% in 1 year old French oak with yields of around 2 tonnes per acre resulting in very concentrated fruit. Opaque black crimson colour with deep black crimson hue. Quite intense the nose exhibits lifted aromas of ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate followed by some toasty cedar and vanillin confectionary. Joosy and rich with a plush mouthfeel the palate boasts flavours of ripe blackberry, liquorice, vanilla and confectionary with a toast overlay. Velvet smooth tannins. Long aftertaste of blackberry, liquorice, toast and vanillin spice.
Drink over the next 3-4 years (2011-2015).
Purple-red; a quintessential full-bodied McLaren Vale shiraz, with masses of blackberry and black plum fruit wrapped in a coat of dark unsweetened chocolate. A long future.
