The 'Burvill' utilises the best fruit I can source from McLaren Vale (a biodynamic vineyard from the Seaview sub-region), two years in a blend of new and aged oak, and finally a further two years maturing in bottle. With much anticipation I am very excited to finally release this wine to you as a symbol of my journey and love of Shiraz.

Winery Tasting Notes
Black as midnight with vivid purple hue.
An enchanting nose of crushed mulberries, briar, lifted sweet vanilla bean with an intense waft of blackcurrant pastille.
A smooth, velvet palate loaded with sweet mouthfilling blackberry/bramble fruit, a savoury touch of tapenade, liberal splashes of chocolate and a pleasant toasty character. The palate is generously extended by lingering, fine liquorice tannins and warming touch of black pepper on the finish.
A versatile wine. Can be drunk with good company, served with a firm, mature cheddar. Will impress at a good old meat grilling session (ensure the steaks have plenty of marbling). If seeking solitude, dim the lights and gently let it numb your senses with your favourite music in the background…nothing else required.
