Grant Burge Wines

5TH GENERATION

The 5th Generation range honours the winemaking endeavours of Grant Burge over five generations while showcasing the exemplary fruit and unrivalled quality produced in our highly acclaimed Barossa region.


2018 PINOT GRIS

The Fruit

The fruit was sourced from a variety of premium cool-climate vineyards, including the Barossa and Adelaide Hills, which consistently produce fruit of exceptional flavour and interest.

The Winemaking

Harvested in the cool of the night, the fruit was de-stemmed and placed directly into the press to minimize skin contact.  After fermentation the wines were matured in 2-4yo French Oaks for 3 to 6 months.

The Wine

The wine is pale straw in colour with the slightest hint of rose gold. With rich aromas of ripe stone fruits, the wine is elegantly balanced by sweet notes of crème brulee and floral perfume of peach blossom. The palate is a perfect harmony of fresh, vibrant fruit flavours and creamy complexity with spicy and nutty nuances derived from the oak fermentation and extended lees contact this wine received prior to bottling.  

A classically varietal Pinot Gris with intense fruit flavours of peach and pear, accented with subtle, spicy oak and creamy yeast-derived characters. A true food wine that is a perfect paring with a range of dishes from spicy stir-fry, creamy curries, to fresh Mediterranean cuisine.

2018 SAUVIGNON BLANC

The Winemaking

The 2018 vintage saw an unusually dry summer and early autumn, coupled with the cool night-time temperatures allowed the vines to produce fruit with exceptional character and flavour while being harvested at lower degrees of sugar ripeness, producing vibrant, balanced, lower alcohol styles.

The Wine

The 2018 Grant Burge 5th Generation Sauvignon Blanc is very pale, platinum with green tinges in colour. The bouquet displays intense aromas of tropical fruits like passionfruit, guava, pineapple, accented with sweet floral top-notes and herbaceous lift of Kaffir Lime and sweet basil. The richly flavoured palate is incredibly vibrant with sweet tropical flavours of passionfruit and pineapple, complemented by gooseberry, lychee and sweet basil. This fresh and zesty palate finishes with the mouth-watering zing of sherbet-like natural acidity. The Grant Burge 5th Generation Sauvignon Blanc makes a great accompaniment to fresh Asian cuisine, such as Green Papaya Salad and Spicy Chicken Pad Thai.

2018 CHARDONNAY

The Winemaking

The 2018 vintage saw an unusually dry summer and early autumn, coupled with the cool night-time temperatures allowed the vines to produce fruit with exceptional character and flavour while being harvested at lower degrees of sugar ripeness, producing vibrant, balanced, lower alcohol styles.

The Wine

A classic Barossa Chardonnay with powerful aromas of peaches and cream, accented by sweet and aromatic spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and cardamom. Ripe tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango coupled with the sweet scents of fresh brioche and croissants, and a hint of double cream and fresh cultured butter. Flavours of fresh peach, pineapple and mango layered with clotted cream, spiced cinnamon buns, buttered toast and a hint of cheesy funk. The sweet-fruited, complex and densely flavoured palate is creamy and decadent; yet finishes crisp and clean thanks to carefully balanced acidity and excellent persistence of flavour. Perfect with perfect match for Mediterranean fare – tomato-based pasta dishes, pizza, cassoulet or paella would pair beautifully.

2017 MERLOT

The Winemaking

The cool and wet conditions followed by warm conditions during summer resulted in a very late vintage, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly, with gradual development of sugars. The extended hang time on the vine with increased canopy density due to the wet spring and summer allowed the fruit to attain excellent flavour ripeness, while maintaining good levels of natural acidity.

The Wine

The 2017 vintage has a red color with incredible depth along with purple hues. The rich aroma is layered with mixed spice, liquorice, ripe plum and dark cherry on the nose. This medium to full bodied Merlot is filled with liqueur cherry, vanilla and dark chocolate flavours. Textured soft palate with gentle tannins complimented with a lingering sweet fruit finish.

It's a full-bodied wine; the red fruits in the mid-palate are balanced with integrated fine, long tannins and hints of sweetness and spice from the oak. The soft integrated tannin structure gives the wine elegance and mid-palate structure. The multi-layered flavours and long lingering finish make this an impressive wine.
