Overview

Sourced from a combination of established, dry-grown vineyards in central South Australia and low-yielding McLaren Vale vineyards. Wines are made and matured by Jim Zerella in McLaren Vale.

Flowering and budburst were delayed due to the cooler, wet spring. A long ripening period ensued with resultant picking occurring much later than previous years. Crops were smaller but with excellent vineyard and canopy management and a warm summer our fruit reached optimal ripeness with additional character developed through extended hang-time.

Expert Reviews

Rated: 93 Points Source: Sam Kim, www.wineorbit.co.nz, July 2018

"This is super comforting and gratifying; lifted aromas of blackberry, vanilla, milk chocolate and cake spice lead to a concentrated palate that is fleshy and velvety. The wine is filled with gorgeous fruit flavours backed by silky texture and polished tannins, finishing long and attractive. At its best: now to 2023."

Winery Tasting Notes

This is plush with lifted red and blue berry fruit flavours layered with dark spice, fresh leather and black olive. The palate is loose and mouth-filling, driven long by fresh acidity and supple tannins. A serious wine suitable for all occasions – ready to drink now or with careful cellaring it will improve over the medium term.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Burns and Fuller is a partnership with Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek wine growers. The aim was to create wines outside of considerations of fashion or style. Simply high quality and authentically flavoured wines with serious cellaring potential.  Real wines at an affordable price.  

The Burns and Fuller Adelaide Hills Chardonnay is a fresh and fruit-driven example of the refined Adelaide Hills style. Stone-fruit and citrus flavours build to a pleasingly round mouth-feel before being carried to a dry finish by fresh mineral acidity.

   The Burns and Fuller Langhorne Creek Shiraz is generous and expansive, displaying the rich dark berry and chocolate flavours that make Langhorne Creek such outstanding value. Rewarding and approachable now, serve this classically rich and mouth-filling wine with grilled red meats.
