Overview

A partnership with our Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek growers, Burns & Fuller is a range of contemporary and fruit driven varietal wines made by Jim Zerella, Each wine is fruit-driven and balanced with a core of fruit given complexity by a barren aged component.

Vineyard

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.

Winemaking

The fruit is hand-harvested and vineyard sorted before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in seasoned French and American oak (30% new French) for nine months before bottling with minimal filtration and sulphur addition.

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.
