Major grape varieties are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Riesling. The country has no native grapes, and Vitis vinifera varieties were introduced from Europe and South Africa in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Although Syrah was originally called Shiraz in Australia and Syrah elsewhere, its dramatic commercial success has led many Syrah producers around the world to label their wine ”Shiraz”.

RockBare Mclaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon

Coonawarra is home to one of the most famous terroirs in the world and synonymous for its symmetry with Cabernet Sauvignon. This vital foundation, along with 6 months extended skin contact, followed by maturation in predominately French oak results in a wine that is distinctly regional and varietal but embellished in our own RockBare style.

RockBare Mclaren Vale Chardonnay

Sourced from the higher climbs of the region, small batches of the purest fruit has created the most intricate style of Chardonnay since our first release in 2000. Laden with crisp, natural acidity, a lick of spice from French oak and a nutty complexity from lees stirring.

RockBare Mclaren Vale Grenache

Grown from bush vines and made in the spirit of the new wave of McLaren Vale Grenache. Picked early and handled delicately, bright and crunchy, this baby pushes the lovely wild cherry nature of the grape. Light walnutty tannins give it an appetizing, savory finish.

RockBare Mclaren Vale Riesling

A regionally expressive Watervale Riesling with its’ intense fresh cut lime and delicate floral notes. A palate complimented by a textural complexity, and finished dry with a crisp natural acidity.

RockBare Mclaren Vale Shiraz
