This 2020 Shiraz from acclaimed RockBare winery in McLaren Vale is a deep ruby red, with a lovely youthful violet hue. A fragrant nose of fresh blueberries, a little vanillin, mixed spice, cedar and a floral hint of perfumed violets. Approachable, graceful palate of mulberry and blueberry compote. Up front, juicy flesh of plum with underlying notes of chocolate coated coffee beans, mint, black pepper, and a hint of earthy truffles. A solid backbone of supporting acidity extends these characters towards
the finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

The RockBare Shiraz is a regional blend, grown predominately from the cooler north-eastern end of McLaren Vale. Their winemaking philosophy is to showcase varietal integrity, brightness of fruit, while capturing depth of flavour and supported with fine tannins.

Select blocks in the NE corner of McLaren Vale were harvested over the 14-18th of March. Harvest 2020 was low yielding but of high quality. This end of McLaren Vale is slightly cooler, has sandier soils, and produces more blue- fruited, perfumed and elegant wines. Fermentation was started in stainless steel open fermenters; letting the ferment warm itself to 28ËšC; and then bringing it back to a nice cool long ferment of 12 days at 22ËšC; retaining those pretty aromatics. Gently pressing of the parcels off of their skins was achieved through an airbag press. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was sent for maturation in older French and American oak hogsheads, and some seasoned large format French oak vats for 15 months prior to preparation for bottling.
