Expert Reviews

The classic Australian blend with bubbles in it. A blend of small parcels of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon predominantly from the 2001 and 2002, liqueured with a little 1996 Vintage Port. The result is a stylish sparkling red with complex flavours of spice, dark cherry and smokey bacon. Serve with roast duck.Darryl Thomas, "By the Glass" Sunday Territorian (May/2006)

Good classic Aussie style. Creamy texture with leathery/spicy black fruit characters. Winestate (DEC/2010)

..'Rich and fruity wine showing tonnes of blackcurrant and ripe plum flavours with a nice spicy lift. Warm and soft palate..'West Australian - Nov 2007

If you're looking for a nice drop for your office Christmas party, we can highly recommend the Grant Burge Sparkling Slriraz Cabernet. Anthony Madigan, Wine Business Magazine (NOV/2006)

It's a lively, sweet and fruity blend of shiraz, and cabernet with intense berry and cherry fruit flavours, a persistent bead and a smooth creamy finish. If you are planning a Christmas in July dinner this would be an ideal match with roast duck. Kerry Skinner, Illawarra Mercury (JUL/2009)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Our inaugural release of Sparkling Shiraz Cabernet is deep ruby in colour.

The wine shows a complex, earthy nose of smokey oak, bacon and spicy cedar along with rich fruit characters of liqueur cherries and blackberries. It is elegant and lively with the big flavours of the nose carrying through to the palate.

Palate

The palate has a creamy mousse and elegant mouth feel finishing with a perfect balance of acidity and fruit sweetness.

Food Matching

This wine perfect with duck, and is a favourite accompaniment to the Burge's Christmas dinner. vintages.

Winemaking Notes

Both varieties were crushed and fermented separately and left on skins a short time to ensure full flavoured and soft textured wines. The ferments were pumped over three times a day and completed primary fermentation in French and American oak and then aged for between 15 and 18 months in old puncheons. After blending, the wine was on tirage for 18 months before being disgorged and liqueured with Vintage Port, which has contributed to the wine’s incredible complexity.

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
