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.


2016 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.

2017 SAUVIGNON BLANC

The Fruit

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the cool Adelaide Hills region. The wet spring and summer in vintage 2017 resulted in a late vintage, allowing the fruit to attain excellent flavour ripeness while maintaining good levels of natural acidity.

The Winemaking

The fruit for this wine was picked in the cool of the night, crushed and de-stemmed immediately to maintain fruit and varietal flavour. Selected parcels were allowed short periods of skin contact in the press to increase flavour and varietal expression in the finished wine.

The Wine

The 2017 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.

2017 CHARDONNAY

The Fruit

The 5th Generation Chardonnay brings together the richness of fruit from the Barossa Valley and the elegance of fruit from Eden Valley to create a dynamic and delightful wine that showcases the many facets of Barossa Chardonnay. The wet spring and summer allowed the fruit to attain excellent flavour ripeness while maintaining good levels of natural acidity.

The Winemaking

The fruit was crushed, chilled and tank pressed with the juice allowed to settle for 48 hours prior to racking clear juice off solids for fermentation. A combination of different yeast strains were used to provide interest and complexity in the wine. A portion of the wine was fermented and matured in French oak for additional complexity, texture and mouthfeel. After fermentation the wines remained on yeast lees until bottling.

The Wine

Pale straw in colour, the nose exhibits powerful aromas of peaches and cream, accented by sweet and aromatic spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, along with ripe tropical fruits and bakery-fresh brioche and croissants. The palate is richly flavoured with peach, pineapple and apricot, followed by secondary flavours of clotted cream, spiced cinnamon buns and buttered toast. The sweet-fruited, complex and densely flavoured palate is creamy and decadent, yet the finish is crisp and clean with wonderful length of flavour that carries on long after the wine is consumed. This Chardonnay is a perfect match for Mediterranen dishes, such as tomato-based pastas, cassoulet and coq au vin.

2015 MERLOT

The Fruit

The 2015 vintage in the Barossa saw a cool winter with average rainfall followed by a very dry, warm spring with temperatures 3-4°C above average. A cooler than average December and January helped maintain fruit quality and acid retention. A warmer February followed by a mild March allowed for good ripening conditions for the balance of the vintage.

The Winemaking

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed prior to being fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the final wine was matured in a combination of new and two- to four-year-old French and American oak for 21 months before bottling.

The Wine

Purple and red in colour, this wine has aromas of plum and mint, supported by hints of vanilla, chocolate and mocha. The soft sweet palate is delicately layered with red berry and plum flavours and is balanced by the ripe tannins with the addition of oak and fruit sweetness. The multi-layered flavours and lingering finish give this wine an impressive length and structure. This wine will benefit from cellaring for eight to 10 years, and is a delicious match for a variety of pasta dishes and red meats.

2016 CABERNET MERLOT

The Fruit

The 2016 vintage produced a cool, dry winter and well below average rainfall all leading to below average fruit set and smaller berry sizes. The resulting low yields did produce high-quality wines with great colour, aromatics and ripe fruit characters all balanced by a superb tannin structure. The majority of the fruit was sourced from the cool-climate Eden and Barossa Valleys.

The Winemaking

After crushing and de-stemming, most of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks on skins for seven days to bring out the maximum colour and flavour, with a few of the ferments left on skins for up to 30 days to develop softness and complexity. The wine was then transferred to barrel to complete malolactic fermentation after pressing. All of the wine was then matured in predominantly French oak hogheads for 14 months.

The Wine

The 2016 Cabernet Merlot is a classic blend that combines the elegant structure and vibrant fruit characters of Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) with the plummy softness of Merlot (15%). Deep garnet in colour, this wine has a rich and varied bouquet of blackcurrant and coffee bean with dark chocolate and mint highlighted by lifted earthy characters. The mid-palate is soft and rich with loads of chocolate and berry flavours and well-integrated oak that adds spice to the flavour profile. The palate is long and elegantly structured with oak and Cabernet tannins combining to carry this wine through to a long and flavoursome finish. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to barbecued lamb dishes.

2016 SHIRAZ

The Fruit

The 2016 vintage in the Barossa saw a cool winter and spring with lower than average rainfall followed by a warm summer. The mild February and March allowed for a smooth harvest and good flavour development. The 2016 vintage is regarded as a very good year for reds in the Barossa.

The Winemaking

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed prior to being fermented in stainless steel tanks. After it underwent malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in a combination of American and French oak for a period of 14 months.

The Wine

Deep dark purple in colour, this wine instantly impresses with aromas of raspberry and blackberry, complemented by spice, subtle vanilla and coffee bean. 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.
