Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age.

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence.

Physicians become great winemakers, they are innately attuned to the biology and alchemy required for constructing the sanest wines. Dark Side of the Moon is crafted from parcels of exceptional Clare Valley Shiraz, displaying great concentration and depth of flavour. Claymore's estate vineyard is non-irrigated with low yields averaging 1½ to 2 tonnes per acre, keeping production at this boutique winery to a modest few thousand cases. Grapes are sourced from sites at Leasingham, Watervale and Penwortham, with contributions from eminent growers in other parts of Valley Clare. The finished Dark Side Shiraz is treated to an extended maturation in seasoned and new French and American oak barrels.
Dark, bright purple colour. Pretty aromatics of crushed violets, dark berries and anise, underlaid by complexing oak derived notes of spices and toast. A gentler acid structure on the palate where juicy berries and dark plum fruits shine alongside mocha notes. Tannins are moderate, gently coating the palate, oak is integrated, to complement rather than overshadow the fruit.
