Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The 2009 Shiraz is intense red with vibrant purple hues.

Aroma

The nose shows an array of aromas with ripe plum and dark cherries, which is lifted by fragrant oral and raspberry notes.

Palate

The palate is rich and silky, with fruit flavours balanced by hints of chocolate and vanilla. A fine tannin structure supports the flavour to create an elegant and smooth drinking wine.

Food Matching

A wonderful food wine, trying matching with a slow cooked Moroccan Lamb Tangine or a simple steak and vegetables.

Vineyard

The 2009 vintage began earlier than expected, with below average rainfall resulting in lower than average yields. However, an excellent growing season allowed for maximum development

of varietal characters and concentration of avour for which Barossa Shiraz is renowned.

Winemaking Notes

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed, then fermented in stainless steel tanks for seven days, with temperatures peaking at 26º C early in the fermentation, then brought down to 22ºC, and pumped over three times a day. Free run and pressings were combined for added colour and structure, the wine was then matured in a combination of American and French oak for 12 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
