  • Fortified Wines | Aged Tawny

    Grant is very fond of his fortifieds, and as a world winner of best fortified (3 times over) he knows his stuff.

    Non Vintage Aged Tawny

    The Fruit:

    This fine aged tawny is made from the Barossa’s traditional tawny varieties - mostly grenache, with some mataro and shiraz - and has been blended to an average age of six years.

    The Winemaking:

    A solera-based system is used, enabling us to consistently release wines of high quality. A limited quantity of Aged Tawny is drawn for bottling each year and the barrels topped up with selected younger wine.

    The Comments:

    The wine is a lovely golden tawny colour with definite red tinges. The spicy fruit flavours are a legacy of the high proportion of grenache and add a lifted freshness to the more complex aged characters in the background. The palate is smooth and rich, with the mid-palate sweetness balanced by an elegant drying finish.

      Penguin Best Value Fortified Wine. Grant Burge's family has been making port in the Barossa for yonks, so they have a pretty good stock of old wines to draw on when blending. This one seems to have gone up a peg since our last review of it. Current release non-vintage. This is a lovely port, showing good depth of aged character well above its price station. The colour is light tawny. It smells as though there's some sherry, or 'old sweet white' material in it, and there's a dollop of rancio that you don't expect to find in a wine of this price. Underneath is a rich fruity palate with raisin, prune and chocolate flavours. The finish is mellow and clean, drying off nicely, and the complex flavours linger. A real bargain! Sip with chocolates and coffee.

      Grant Burge has quietly accumulated ample stocks of mature and maturing Barossa material of impressive quality. The Aged Tawny is his entry-level port and a most enjoyable regional style.

      Oak dominates nose. Slight linseed/ rancio notes. Luscious, liqueur style palate. Good balance of sweet fruit and a sweet fruit finish.

      It says a fair bit about the Grant Burge tawny collection that this 'entry level' fortified can delivery such depth of character with spicy oak and toffee flavours in classy balance at this price. For further complexities, try the Grant Burge 10 year old and 20 year old versions - they take you into higher realms and are most worth it.

      Winestate Magazine - Jun 2014

      An elegant easy drinking wine that's loaded with huge rich fruit characters, some age intensity. Quite a woody savoury style.

      Predominantly a Grenache based wine it is a smooth, rich style with luscious spicy fruit flavours. Quite refreshing for this sweet "Port" style, the dry finish gives the wine excellent balance

      It is truly amazing that a port as good as this should sell so cheaply. Don't tell your guests what it cost, but serve a small glass with a cheese platter, fresh walnuts and muscatels after dinner

      Strong linseed oil-like nose with pleasant coffee and rancio aromas. Soft aged palate, warm spirit and sweet on the finish.

      Lovely nose of caramel and nuts over dried fruit. Clean spirit weaves through mid-weight palate. Good flavours and a drying aftertaste.
