Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history.

Riesling grapes grown to the higher, slow ripening vineyards of King Valley translate into delicate and intensely flavoured whites. The warmer days develop ripe fruit flavours, cooler nights achieve crisp varietal characters. The fruit is harvested throughout the cool of night, crushed and chill pressed before the dawn, to the lowest free run juice yields. To ensure a superior quality of wine, juice yields are closely watched and the pressings are arrested at the first sign of phenolic uptake. Batches are treated to a cool vinification for 3½ weeks in controlled fermenters, retaining all the wonderfully fresh citrus characters and preserving pure King Valley Riesling charm.
Light straw colour. An intense floral nose with a hint of zest, rose petal and honeysuckle aromas leading to stonefruit flavours. A luscious, cool ripened palate that's bursting with citrus, lime and spicy fruit flavours, soft and fresh. The long and lingering, gentle palate is softened by a touch of residual sugar, finishing clean and lingering, tight and very crisp.
