Overview

The pinot noir grapes are hand picked into 200-kilogram crates in order to minimise damage to the berries and extraction of red colour from the skins. The chardonnay portion is also hand picked. The crates of pinot noir and chardonnay grapes are stacked into refrigerated rooms and cooled to 4°C for maximum flavour retention. The grapes are then transferred to a tank press for wholebunch pressing - a process that extracts a very fine and delicate juice. The juice is then clarified and fermented at controlled temperatures. The percentage of pinot noir in the blend has gradually been increased to give greater depth of flavour and now sits at about 70 per cent. The blend spends 30- 32 months on tirage before disgorging and liqueuring.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale gold colour with a fine and persistent bead.

Aroma

The wine deals out a delightful biscuit- like nose combined with ripe strawberry and peach characters.

Palate

The palate is rich and generous with a real vitality that’s heightened by the creamy mouth-feel.

Food Matching

This is a sparkling that adapts to its environment, and as such is just as enjoyable with food as it is on its own.

Fruit

Our Pinot Chardonnay Methode Traditionelle is made from a majority of fruit grown in the elevated cool climate regions of the Adelaide Hills and Eden Valley. The grapes produced here have delicate, yet quite intense flavours, as well as the natural acidity and lean, elegant flavours that are required to make high-quality sparkling wine in the tradition of champagne.

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
