Food Matching

The intense and complex characters of this wine would be a delicious match to aged beef or roasted kangaroo fillets with a sautéed mushroom sauce and a side of steamed green beans and broccoli.


The grapes for this wine were picked from Grant's Cameron Vale vineyard, which was planted between 1971 and 1975, in a fertile area between Lyndoch and Williamstown, with a portion sourced from the cool Eden Valley. The maturity of the vines clearly evident in the intensity and full flavour of the wine. The 2008 vintage began earlier than expected due to an early heat wave, however the aspect of the vineyard protected the fruit allowing it to display varietal character, concentration and flavour.

Winemaking Notes

After crushing and de-stemming, the juice was fermented on skins for seven days, with temperatures peaking at 26ºC early in the fermentation, then brought down to 22ºC. To add structure and colour, a quarter of the blend was left on skins for 30 days. At the end of fermentation and extended maceration, parcels of the wine were transferred to new French oak and some new American oak to completion malolactic fermentation. The entire blend was then transferred to oak to mature for 20 months.

History and Tradition

Grant Burge is a fifth-generation Barossa Vigneron. Throughout his career, Grant has been one of the most respected and innovative forces in the Australian wine industry. The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in the region can be traced back to March 1855, when noted tailor John Burge immigrated to the Barossa from Hillcot, near Pewsey in Wiltshire, England with his wife Eliza and their two sons. With help from his sons Meshach and Henry, John’s farm flourished with wheat, sheep and viticulture. His eldest son Meshach continued the farming tradition and was a prominent community leader. He married Emma in the early 1900s and they had eight children. First-born Percival established the Wilsford Winery in 1916, beginning the Burge winemaking tradition. Percival had two sons, Noel and Colin, and Colin and his wife Nancy had one son, Grant. Following in the footsteps of his father and forefathers before him, Grant now carries the winemaking tradition into the 21st century

Family Owned

Grant Burge Wines was formed in 1988 by Grant and his wife Helen, and is located in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the banks of Jacob's Creek and is still proudly family owned. Continuing the family tradition, Grant and Helen have now brought the sixth generation into the fold. Eldest son Toby is the company’s Vineyard Manager, upholding the premium quality and consistency of fruit produced from the vineyards. Amelia joined the Marketing Department in an assistant role early in 2007, and in late 2008 went out into the world to gain more experience to bring back to the company later on in her career. Trent, the youngest, has been part of the hardworking cellar team at the Illaparra Winery since vintage 2006. All three children share Grant and Helen’s vision to continue this long family tradition of bringing exceptional wines to the world.

“I am a romantic, and I have a real sense of my family history, of my father and grandfather, and what they achieved.” Grant Burge
