Accolade Wines (Grant Burge Wines)

GRANT BURGE VINEYARDS

Grant Burge's vineyard management is overseen by Rodney Birchmore, Viticulturist. He believes that if the right varieties are grown in the right soils, and vines are managed to produce low-to-moderate yields, the vines will produce the premium quality fruit needed to produce exceptional wines. 

The Barossa is famous around the world for its premium wines and Grant Burge is one of the most recognised winemakers from this region. The diversity of the terroir and the region's levels, combined with its Mediterranean climate, provide the perfect environment to make a range of ultra-premium wines. Located just 80km north of South Australia’s capital city of Adelaide, the Barossa also provides a perfect weekend escape to enjoy its fine wines and gourmet food. Find out more about Visiting the Barossa.

The region consists of two distinct valleys. The Barossa Valley floor is 200-250m above sea level, with rich, red-brown, deep, alluvial soils ideal for red wine grape growing. This contrasts to the high-altitude Eden Valley at 500m above sea level with rocky, acidic and grey schist soils, ideal for cool-climate viticulture. Together, these two geographical indications make up The Barossa.

The Barossa is widely recognised as Australia’s most varied district for premium grape growing. It features cold, wet winters and generous spring rains to set up moisture reserves. During summer and autumn, the weather dries off, providing warm and moderate conditions ideal for ripening grapes. This produces the full, generous varietal flavours for which the district is renowned.

The majority of Grant Burge's fruit is sourced from the southern half, where the climate isn’t as harsh as other parts of the Barossa, it has higher rainfall and more balanced and less stressed canopies. The soils are generally rich deep red/brown medium clay/loam and are rich in nutrients with ideal water-holding capacity. These soils generally make wines with red berry fruit instead of big plummy ripe characters.

Grant Burge sources fruit from the following vineyards: Corryton Park, Summers, Lily Farm, Grocke Farm, Colin Burge, Haese, The Holy Trinity, Daly Road, Wilsford, Hillcot, Filsell, Cameron Vale, Ashlyn, Miamba, The Chaff Mill, Berghofer, Wohlstadt.
