Our mission is simple: to make wines that best represent South Australia. We do this by selecting outstanding grapes from the best regions across the state to bottle what we love most about this magical place.

The Best
of South Australia

From where vines meet the sea in McLaren Vale, to the fertile red soils of Clare Valley and beyond, we work directly with family-owned vineyards and growers to produce our award-winning wines. Many have been part of the RockBare journey since we took our first steps 20 years ago. Our first wine – a Shiraz from a vineyard near Port Willunga where rugged rocks flank the shore – was the inspiration behind our name.
We live in the birthplace of Australian wine. The first plantings in South Australia were more than 150 years ago and the region remains one of the most diverse in the world. The best areas in the state have built their reputations around specific varieties. Each varies to suit the climates and unique soils of each.
The Jackson and Valmorbida partnership brings together two iconic wine families across as many continents. Both share the passion and perspective necessary for introducing this already respected collection of South Australian wines to the world. “For us, it’s more than a business – it’s our passion. What’s even more special is seeing our children, the next generation, working together to grow and nurture RockBare.”

Winemaker
Shelley Torresan

“We focus on making wines that are a unique expression of landscape, soil and climate from where our RockBare grapes are sourced. These are wines displaying brightness of fruit that capture depth of flavour with fine tannins.”
Shelley completed her winemaking degree in 1999, making her first wines at Haselgrove Wines in McLaren Vale. It was the start of a connection to the region that has grown into a broader passion for South Australia's history and varietals. Like most young winemakers, she was lured overseas to complete vintages in France and California. Shelley returned to McLaren Vale in 2008, commencing her work with Jackson Family Wines' Yangarra Estate Vineyard.
At RockBare, Shelley showcases the unique growing conditions across South Australia and the variety of each parcel of fruit. Passionate about food and wine, she crafts approachable, fresh and vibrant wines that fit today's lifestyle of enjoying fresh food from the land and great wine shared with family and friends.

The Clare Riesling

The Clare Riesling  2019

$25 per bottle in a 12 pack
  • Description
  • Tasting Note
  • Reviews
Hailing from the Clare Valley, this attractive riesling has a fleshy palate of freshly squeezed lemon juice complimented by hints of tangerine peel and orange blossom honey that seamlessly meld with a funky mid palate complexity including traces of subtle, spicy stem ginger and river stone, pair this with a couple of dozen natural oysters.
Floral and refreshing, blossom and lime zest dominate the palate. The wine is crisp and dry with a beautiful zing of grapefruit like acidity.

It is bright, light and pristine with delicate aromas of lemon peel, apple and white florals on the nose. The palate is focused and persistent, delivering lovely fruit purity and vibrancy backed by fine texture and racy acidity, finishing superbly long and mouth-watering.

94 POINTS – SAM KIM
The Clare draws its inspiration from the earliest days of winemaking in Australia. The label pays homage to the German Jesuit priests who fled persecution and settled in the Clare Valley. They were the first winemakers and brought with them Riesling’s 15th century origin story from the Rhine, Germany. Older still are the ancient soils where we now source our fruit. Soils that were once roamed by a giant wombat, the diprotodon, over 1.6 million years ago.
Clare Valley

Clare Valley

Hidden away in Mount Lofty Ranges in South Australia is the breathtaking Clare Valley. Riesling reigns supreme here and the region's classic, dry style is widely recognised as world-class. Clare Rieslings retain acidity due to cool evening temperatures, while still exhibiting aromas of lime and citrus marmalade with age.
Clare Valley

Chardonnay

Chardonnay  2018

$28 per bottle in a 12 pack
  • Description
  • Tasting Note
  • Reviews
This is a real show stopper. It’s textural and nutty with delicate honeydew melon and peach flavours mingling with ginger, toast, and spice, partly due to the wild ferments that give added complexity and funk. With masses of creamy texture balanced by limey acidity, to say this chardonnay is delicious is an understatement. Enjoy it with chicken, crayfish or runny aged brie.
A bright palate of citrus, green mango and melon is given texture from bâtonnage stirring. The result is a beautifully balanced wine with a slightly creamy finish and perfectly integrated French Oak.

Bernard clone 96 from a single vineyard, 10% fermented in French Oak, 12% in used French oak the remainder in tank on lees. Within its self-set limitations, a good wine.

90 POINTS – JAMES HALLIDAY
A story of the old and the new, the label references the classic style of the Burgundies of France, with a nod to modern cool climate Chardonnay's. Robert Barr Smith philanthropist, prominent businessman and pioneer of the opening of outback South Australia is depicted in the crest design, along with a pair of marsupial lions, Australia’s largest mammalian predator that prowled the Adelaide Hills around 40,000 years ago.
Adelaide Hills

Adelaide Hills

Bordered by the Barossa Valley to the north and McLaren Vale to the south, the vibrant Adelaide Hills is a cool-climate jewel between its warmer, lower-lying cousins. It’s the home of modern Australian Chardonnay, known for elegant, lean and textured wines that are shaped by the region’s altitude and changing seasons.
Adelaide Hills

Wild Vine Grenache Rosé

Wild Vine Grenache Rosé  2018

$25 per bottle in a 12 pack
  • Description
  • Tasting Note
  • Reviews
Rosés are often thought of as soft, elegant and feminine wines, but our WildVine Grenache Rosé is a little more rugged and wilder than most. Don't be fooled by the colour: this is a wine that is fruit driven, full of flavour and regional character.
Made to a dry style for easy-drinking over summer. A refreshing palate of fresh red berry fruits, some yellow peach notes and a zesty orange-like acidity. A complexing creaminess from lees stirring creates a smooth finish with a slight savoury feel.

Attractively fruited and beautifully lifted, the inviting bouquet shows rockmelon, strawberry, floral and subtle spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate that is vibrant and flowing. It is refreshing and delightfully drinkable. At its best: now to 2020.

93 POINTS – SAM KIM
In McLaren Vale, it wasn’t always rows and rows of trellised and pruned vines, all standing lined up like vinous soldiers. The vines were bushy and wild, roaming free. Rosé is often seen as a softer, elegant and almost feminine wine, but with bush vines, they seem more brutish and coarse, maybe masculine. Our label is a contemporary take on a bush vine. The intricate vine illustration on the front mirrors the pretty aromatics of the wine whilst the handwriting speaks to the wild and free nature of the bush vine on the back label.
McLaren Vale

McLaren Vale

Located where the vines stretch to the shore, McLaren Vale is one of the most geologically diverse terrains in the world. The origin of South Australia’s wine industry, it boasts a pristine natural environment and is best known for Shiraz, and more recently, Grenache. Summers here are hot and dry, but the ocean has an air conditioning-like effect on both the maritime, cool-climate wines and the visitors that drink them.

Grenache

Grenache  2017

$28 per bottle in a 12 pack
  • Description
  • Tasting Note
  • Reviews
Grown from bush vines and made in the spirit of the news wave of Grenache. Picked early and handled delicately, bright and crunchy, this baby pushes the lovely wild wild cherry nature of the grape. Light walnut tanks give it an appetising, savoury finish.
Hand harvested from bush vines the palate on this Grenache is bright and crunchy, delicate and pretty. It is red fruit driven with textural complexity and a savoury finish.

Offering lovely varietal purity, the wine shows sweetly perfumed aromas of raspberry and dark plum on the nose with nuances of toasted nut, thyme and floral. The palate is equally charming and delectable with juicy fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, backed by silky texture and polished tannins. At its best: now to 2023.

95 POINTS – SAM KIM
The McLaren labels pay homage to the early 1960s. The period when the region’s innovators started to remodel the one of Australia’s oldest wine regions by focusing on full bodied varietals. The strong, hard edges of the design match the bold and distinctive flavours of the region’s Shiraz and Grenache. The summer palette of the region’s rolling vineyards provides the earthy colours.

Shiraz

Shiraz  2018

$28 per bottle in a 6 pack
  • Description
  • Tasting Note
  • Reviews
If you’re after a light Shiraz, this is not the red for you. It’s inky black and dripping with ripe blackberries, dark chocolate and liquorice underpinned by mocha and spice. The voluptuous, fleshy mouth-feel is laden with velvet smooth tannins and a long, dark chocolate, spicy mocha and vanillin oak aftertaste. If you’re keen to cellar, 4-5 years would do it justice. Perfect for your next barbecue or steak night.
A lush medium bodied wine with dark berries and juicy plum on the palate brightened by a solid backbone of supporting acidity and ripe, spicy characters.

A quintessential example of McLaren Vale Shiraz at a great price; the nose is brimming with blackberry and plum alongside milk chocolate, spice and some saline notes. Medium to full bodied with a moreish baseline of tannin and oak richness with the saline note that is constant and an impressive addition to the concentrated dark berry fruits. There is a plushness of milk chocolate to finish with some earthen savoury nuance and excellent length.

The McLaren labels pay homage to the early 1960s. The period when the region’s innovators started to remodel the one of Australia’s oldest wine regions by focusing on full bodied varietals. The strong, hard edges of the design match the bold and distinctive flavours of the region’s Shiraz and Grenache. The summer palette of the region’s rolling vineyards provides the earthy colours.
McLaren Vale

McLaren Vale

Located where the vines stretch to the shore, McLaren Vale is one of the most geologically diverse terrains in the world. The origin of South Australia’s wine industry, it boasts a pristine natural environment and is best known for Shiraz, and more recently, Grenache. Summers here are hot and dry, but the ocean has an air conditioning-like effect on both the maritime, cool-climate wines and the visitors that drink them.

Every year, some fruit parcels stand out as even better than the best. We vinify these separately and release them as our most premium wine. We call it RB1.

RB1, our number one. The best parcels from the best sites in South Australia. This wine is from two low yielding adjacent blocks on a vineyard peppered with ironstone near Marananga in the Barossa Valley. The young clay loam soils around the region overlie an astonishing array of very old geology. At 280 metres above sea level, these mature vines produce wines of distinctive style and concentration.
A medium bodied wine, but still with distinctive power and concentration of refined primary fruits. Fantastic lively & textural tannins, supporting the fruit, right through to the finish. Well suited to a rare roasted saddle of venison, or try with a premium cut of rare dry aged beef. Also compliments a good vintage cheddar.

From a single vineyard in Marananga. 3 days cold soak, open-fermented (12-14 days), mlf in barrel plus 18 months maturation, wine with dark fruits, locorice and tar but good overall balance and mouthfeel.

95 POINTS – JAMES HALLIDAY
All our wines proudly feature our logo, RB. The name quietly sits on each as its stamp of authority. But for one wine It stands alone, the RB1. The best of the best. Our number one. Minimalist to the extreme. Black label on a black bottle with a slowly rising diagonal that alludes to the push to the top that our winemaker Shelley strives for with this wine.
Barossa Valley

Barossa Valley

Wine has been a way of life in Barossa since the 1840s and is home to some of the oldest, continually-producing vineyards in the world. With its rich and diverse tapestry of soils and terroirs, it’s little wonder the region is lauded the world over. Shiraz is the Barossa’s star performer and has been pivotal in bringing fine Australian wine to an appreciative global audience.
