RockBare Pty Ltd:
"When I started RockBare, my goal was to make pure and intense wines, using only varieties that are suited to growing in the cool, maritime climate of South Australia's McLaren Vale; Chardonnay, Shiraz and Grenache. These wine varieties are my passion, and McLaren Vale was the logical choice of region to pursue my dream. Six years down the track, and my heart still lies firmly with these noble varieties. Nothing more..... Nothing less." Tim Burvill - Winemaker

Light straw-colored, it offers an attractive nose of pear, lemon-lime, and white peach. Medium-bodied, the mouth this supple-textured Chardonnay delivers mouth-filling poached pear and baked apple flavors, excellent depth and concentration, and a long, fruit-filled finish. It is an outstanding value.

Green-tinged yellow. Fresh melon and peach aromas are complemented by jasmine and subtle leesiness. Light-bodied honeydew and pear flavors are given a bitter edge by lemon pith and brightened by crisp minerality Finishes with sneaky persistence and an echo of citrus zest.

This pale straw Chardonnay has brilliant green hues. Its nose displays lemon, lime and subtle spice characters. On the palate, it offers white peach and pear characters that combine with a creamy/nutty mid palate and a cleansing lemon finish. This is ripe, delivering a mouthful of peach, pear, spice and cream flavors that mingle effectively on the long, lively finish. Green-tinged yellow. Fresh melon and peach aromas are complemented by jasmine. Light-bodied honeydew and pear flavors are given a bitter edge by lemon pith and brightened by crisp mineralogy Finishes with sneaky persistence and an echo of citrus zest.

Winemaker Tim Burvill, who trained with Southcorp, has fashioned a tropical fruit and hazelnut-scented 2003 Chardonnay with good ripeness, decent acidity, and an attractive, medium to full-bodied finish.

Bright, spicy and appealing for its balance of ripe apricot and citrus and deftly integrated spicy oak, echoing on the silky finish. Drink now through 2005.
