Vineyard

For many years, the fruit for our Kraft Sauvignon Blanc has been sourced from Dennis and Val Kraft’s vineyard at Tanunda which is over 20 years old. This vineyard consistently provides well balanced and defined varietal characteristics. Now together with fruit from the cooler Adelaide Hills climate our ‘Kraft’ offers a little more.

The 2010 vintage has proven excellent for aromatic varieties from the cool-climate Adelaide Hills, with an even ripening period allowing the fruit to develop delicate aromatic characters while maintaining fine acidity. The fruit was harvested in the cool of night to retain more fresh and true Sauvignon Blanc varietal characters.

Winemaking Notes

Once the fruit was crushed and drained through a tank press, the free-run juice was cold-settled for 48 hours, before being racked off gross lees. Separate batches were transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. To ensure freshness and crispness is sustained within this variety, fermentation was carried out at a low temperature and then these separate batches were blended accordingly for maximum varietal flavour and balance.

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
