Grant Burge `Meshach` Shiraz 2001 (6 x 750mL) Barossa Valley, SA.

Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ Meshach Burge was my Great Grandfather, the man who started the Burge Winemaker tradition. Aged 11, he came to the Barossa Valley from Hillcot, in Wiltshire, England, with his family establishing a thriving viticultural, wheat and sheep property near Lyndoch. In the late 1860’s, under his father's watchful eye, Meshach began winemaking.

In tribute, my finest Shiraz has been selected to bear his name. Fruit, handpicked form 80 year old vines from my Filsell Vineyard to produce a very full-bodied wine. Matured in new American oak hogsheads for two years, then bottled, it was cellar matured for a further year prior to release.

"Skillful winemaking; a fusion of sweet black fruits and oak; fine tannins, balance and length; great finesse."

Winery Tasting Notes

Ruby red in colour with rich garnet and purple hues, Meshach 2001 Shiraz displays very big aromas. The nose shows complex savoury and spicy flavours with leather, stewed fruits and vanillin oak characters. The palate is rich with savoury, subtle spice characters, balanced with dark berries, dried plums and complex oak and mocha

flavours, with tight tannins leading to a soft back palate, and a very long finish. This is Barossa Shiraz at its best, concentrated, big and bold, and it will cellar for 20 years or more. It should be kept for special occasions and served with rich beef dishes
