2014 Mojo Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Mojo is the second label of the South Australian virtual winery Rockbare wines (virtual as they don't actually have a winery, or a vineyard, just a name) whom have a whole plethora of different wines out there to choose from. This generous and bouncy Mojo Shiraz though is just an essay in juiciness, a wine of purple fruit fun and plenty of it.

Winemaker's Notes

Fleshy, rich and ripe, this Shiraz over-delivers on the quality front. Made from Barossa Valley fruit, renowned for outstanding Shiraz, this red is a beguiling blend of fleshy blackberry, blood plum and red berry fruit, all swathed in sweet charry oak. Pair it with kidney pie, pan fried veal or any rare roasted meat.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Vibrant purple hue; a juicy, young fresh and accessible Shiraz, unencumbered by oak, and made for immediate appeal and drinkability; blue and black fruits, sea salt and a dash of licorice all make for an easygoing drink.

Soft and mellow aromas - developing nicely. Warm palate has plenty of body and lovely varietal fruit flavours with excellent balance of oak tannins. 5+

A positive bouquet foretells a palate with rich blackberrywrapped in dark chocolate, and which carries its alcohol with relative ease, oak in sotto voce support. Great value

Spicy aromas with a sprinkling of crushed ant-like characters. Palate is soft and full of vibrant fruit perfectly balanced by well-handled oak. Still remarkably fresh.

Medium-bodied; elegant and fresh, perfectly ripened shiraz, with blackberry and black cherry fruit; good acidity, fine tannins and subtle oak. Great value. Barossa Valley

Peter Forrestal (2005 Vintage) says
Rockbare's Tim Burvill looked outside the McLaren Vale to source growers' fruit for his Mojo range. Hard to believe but he found some old-vine Barossa shiraz and can offer the resulting wines for less than $15. This has supple, silky-smooth texture, power, richness and concentration of dark berry fruit, pleasing succulence and neat balance.
