Grant Burge is a 5th generation Barossa vigneron. 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 with his wife Eliza and their two sons, Meshach and Henry.
This perfect blend showcases all of the unique attributes and varietal characteristics which can be produced in this historic wine growing area. The Sauvignon Blanc, grown in the Eden Valley was specifically chosen for its vibrancy and classic fruit profile. The Semillon component was sourced from two of the oldest Semillon plantings available, 99 and 65 years old producing fruit with exceptional character and density of flavour.

Winery Tasting Notes
Lemon green in colour.
Lifted fruit aromas of citrus and melon all delicately interwoven with subtle herbaceous notes.
The palate is fresh and lively, with ripe tropical fruit flavours, zesty lime and a soft creamy lemon curd finish. The portion of Semillon spent on lees rounds the palate, adding an extra dimension to the wine.
A wine best enjoyed young.
Fresh seafood such as Thai fish cakes and shellfish.
The 2013 5th Generation Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a worthy successor to the inaugural 2012 vintage.
