Expert Reviews

International Sweet Fortified: Over E10 Trophy "Fantastic, tangy rancio nose and superb concentration. Rich — very rich — but all in balance, with voluptuous sweetness, exquisite poise and a very long finish.Decanter Magazine (OCT/2010)

There is nothing more nerve-racking come dessert time than the arrival and cutting of the fondant — to see if the centre slowly oozes out. Dark chocolate is quite tricky to match, but this classic Barossan fortified is so intense, so redolent of lightly roasted nuts and fine brandy aromas — known in the old tawny world as "rancio" characters — it is as if it was created for this task alone. There are aged wood elements, dried fruit and peel, and it finishes drier than you'd imagine. And it was just named the finest fortifed wine on the planet at the recent Decanter World Wine Awards. Tony Love (OCT/2010)

Made from shiraz, grenache and mataro (otherwise known as mourvedre), this Barossan tawny draws on its 20 year old solera system pedigree to the full. Older wine being drawn off, younger wine being added to keep the stockpot full, so to speak. Plenty of rancio, a smooth and unctuous palate and then a dry finish with the spirit well in control.Ben Canaider and Greg Duncan Powell, Good Living, Sydney Morning Herald (JUN/2006)

A lovely elegant wine. Excellent nose; nice heady spirit and fresh mocha aromas. Luscious, syrupy palate; long, spicy and warm.Winestate (MAY- JUN/2003)

Obvious age in the tawny-gold colour, and in the complex, biscuity Christmas cake palate that has excellent line, length and balance. Trophy Best Sweet Fortified Wine in Show Decanter World Wine Awards ’10 (London). Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (NOV/2010).

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
