Rockbare McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016

Deep ruby red with a lovely youthful violet hue. An enchantingly fragrant nose of fresh macerated berries entwined with sweet vanillin, mixed spice, cedar and a hint of perfumed violets.

Approachable, graceful palate of mulberry and blueberry compote, along with juicy plum driving the up front fleshiness which coalesce with a delightful melange of underlying notes of chocolate coated dark cherry, mint, toasty oak, spicy clove, earthy truffle and a hint of espresso.

A solid backbone of supporting acidity extends these characters towards the wealth of mouth coating tannins, culminating in a soft, lingering raspberry licorice finish and a warming trace of black pepper. Winery Notes

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

Fermentation in stainless static fermenters; letting the ferment warm itself to 28C; and then bringing it back to a nice cool long ferment of 10-14 days at 22C; retaining those pretty aromatics. Gently pressing the parcels off of skins through an airbag press. Wine sent to oak for malolactic fermentation and maturation.

Barrel matured for 18 months in New and older French & American Hogsheads.

Reviews & Accolades

2015 Vintage
"A compelling wine in terms of both price and quality. Excellent colour and a super-fragrant bouquet lead into a supple medium-bodied palate that has a rate grace in the context of McLaren Vale. There is a passing note of dark chocolate, but it’s really the plum and black cherry/berry fruits, allied with soft tannins, that make this hedonistic wine sing so joyfully."
95 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2018

2013 Vintage
"Superb sweet perfumed black fruit bouquet - delicate and fresh. Palate is jam - packed with soft ripe flavours and has a lovely mouthfilling texture. A very classy number."
