Overview

The fruit for this wine is grown in 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 2012 vintage was an exceptional vintage in the Barossa, where good winter rains laid the foundation for a perfect spring. Mild and dry conditions along with cool nights throughout vintage produced near perfect ripening conditions and the resulting wines have exceptional fruit flavour profiles.

Expert Reviews

Grant Burge and chief winemaker Craig Stansborough put forward this may be the best vintage ever (upstaging the late Murray Tyrrell who only ever got to vintage of the century level). This is a blue blood cabernet, with elegance, length and intensity all wrapped up in blackcurrant and cedar flavours, supported by fine tannins through the finish and aftertaste.

Rating 95 - Drink by 2027 - James Halliday, Wine Comapnion - Jul 2015

The nose has a lovely array of blackcurrant and dark fruit aromas, with hints of sweet spice and vanilla in the background.

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
