Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A pale green hued wine

Aroma

Aromas of stone fruit, citrus blossom and green papayas from the nose, with underlying hints of spice, oatmeal and freshly cut hay

Palate

Flavours of fleshy peach, syrupy fig and yellow nectarine are abundant in the palate, complemented by nuances of guava, kiwi and passionfruit curd creaminess. The mid-palate is smooth and textured, teeming with toasted hazelnut, butterscotch and spice notes that are enhanced by the mealy complexity of the palate structure. Light phenolics and cleansing acidity combine with the fruit characters to give a zingy and persistent ruby grapefruit finale.

Food Matching

Chardonnay wines taste great with foods like pasta, risottos, creamy vegetable soups, steamed or grilled fish, and lightly cooked shellfish.

Winemaker Tim Burvill

Growing up in Western Australia, Tim's interest in wine was sparked at a young age by frequent summer holidays to the Margaret River wine region. This passion eventually saw him move to South Australia, where he completed an honours degree in winemaking at Adelaide University's Roseworthy Campus.

His first job out of university was with Southcorp, which as Tim puts it "was the best start to a winemaking career that anyone could ask for." His role as winemaker saw him make wines in regions as diverse as the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, the Sunraysia and the Riverland. A rapid rise through the winemaking 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.

MOJO

South Australia's first vineyards were established in the 1830's. Enjoying a wide range of climates including the cool temperatures of the Adelaide Hills, to the hot summer weather of the Barossa Valley, South Australia is arguably Australia's most diverse wine producing state.

It is from these wonderfully diverse regions that Tim Burvill selects the best varietals to produce Mojo wines. Mojo wines are in keeping with Winemaker Tim Burvill's power-packed fruit driven style.

Mojo was once referred to as a magical charm or amulet containing special powers. It was these supernatural powers that protected from evil or crossed conditions and evoked the bringing of good karma.The secret of our Mojo lies in its ‘magnetism’, with funky branding and great wine.
