Grant Burge Wines

WINES OF DISTINCTION

Grant Burge's Wines of Distinction display the true character of premium wines produced from Barossa old-vine fruit, made with seamless balance and individual character. Distinctively Barossa. Distinctively premium. 


2018 FILSELL SHIRAZ

The Story

The Filsell vineyard with near century-old vines is considered one of the best vineyards in the Barossa Valley and consistently produces fruit of great intensity and concentration. Planted in 1920, this vineyard also produces some of the fruit for Grant Burge Wines' flagship Shiraz, the highly acclaimed Meshach. Filsell is known to loyal followers as Meshach’s younger brother.

The Fruit

‘2018 is an exceptional representation of this wine showing depth and power with restraint. This wine can be enjoyed young but will also cover many decades. The 2018 Filsell exemplifies what the Barossa Valley does so well’, Craig Stansborough, Chief Winemaker.

The Winemaking

Post fermentation the wine was matured for eighteen months in a combination of hogsheads and puncheons. 35% was matured in new oak, both French and American. The balance was matured in a combination of one, two and three year-old French oak.

The Wine

The 2018 Filsell Shiraz is rich, deep and dark crimson in colour, with a complex and deep nose with a mixture of vanilla cream, plum, milk chocolate and Christmas spice. The aroma shows a harmonious balance between oak and fruit. A silky smooth palate full of pure fruit sweetness. A hint of popcorn kernel on the back palate driven by the French and American oak combination. Ripe and firm tannins that are destined to evolve this wine into an absolute classic.

2018 CORRYTON PARK CABERNET SAUVIGNON

The Story

At the southern end of the Barossa near Mount Crawford there is a magnificent property established over 150 years ago, the entrance marked by two grand pillars - Corryton Park. One of the highest and coolest sites in the Barossa region, it provides perfect conditions for creating world class Cabernet with finesse, depth and complexity.

The Fruit

‘Fruit was sourced predominantly from the Corryton Park vineyard in the high country of the Southern Eden Valley. This is Barossa varietal Cabernet Sauvignon at its best, showcasing the very cool location of this vineyard’, Craig Stansborough, Chief Winemaker.

The Winemaking

Fermented in stainless-steel static fermenters for eight-to-ten days with 20% of the fruit left on skins for twenty five days. Fermentation temperatures reached 28°C. Pump overs were performed four times-a-day with reduced pump overs towards the end of fermentation.

The Wine 

The 2018 Corryton Park Cabernet Sauvignon is medium deep with a distinct boysenberry colour, with a vibrant nose displaying distinct Barossa Cabernet characteristics. Anise, cassis and dark mint chocolate are evident upon first swirl with a gentle shade of lifted boysenberry toward the back of the glass. There is an elegance and poise on the palate distinctive of this vineyard and the vintage. Beautiful tannin coats the mid-palate with a touch of coffee bean and gingersnap on the finish. Oak and acidity are brilliantly balanced showing a wine with exceptional cellaring potential.

2018 THE HOLY TRINITY GRENACHE SHIRAZ MOURVÈDRE

The Story

The Holy Trinity is also the name of the Anglican Church in Lyndoch. Grant’s great great grandfather, John Burge, helped to build the church by carting stone and slate to the site prior to its construction in 1860.

The Fruit

The Holy Trinity is a traditional blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. The fruit for this wine is Barossa grown, predominantly handpicked from old, dry-grown vines which range from 35 to 90 years old. Even ripening periods allowed the grapes on the Barossa Valley floor to reach optimal ripeness during what was a very steady harvest in 2018. Heat and dryness toward the end of the harvest created excellent conditions for the late-ripening Grenache and Mourvèdre.  

The Winemaking

A portion of the wine was fermented in traditional old concrete fermenters with the cap held down by header boards – similar to the Southern Rhone technique – allowing heavy extraction of colour and tannin, particularly from the Grenache.

The Wine

The 2018 The Holy Trinity is a richly flavoured and elegantly structured GSM that continues the long and lauded heritage for this traditional blend in the Barossa Valley. The nose is a playful combination of candied apple, raspberry jubes, frangipane and lemon curd. In the background you see notes of cinnamon and clove. On the palate, you can expect a medium to full bodied wine, fresh and vibrant with enough tannin to shape the wine. Acidity carries the wine through to a clean, slightly mineral and lengthy finish. Lovely hints of fresh raspberries and cinnamon linger on the palate.

2018 BALTHASAR SHIRAZ

The Story

The Burge winemaking tradition began with Grant’s Great Grandfather, Meshach, named after the Biblical Meshach, a man of strong religious conviction in the City of Babylon. Another great influence of these ancient times was Balthasar, one of the three wise men, who brought the gift of myrrh to the new born King. In honour of these two noble men, I have created an elegant, highly expressive Shiraz with rich fruit and chocolate flavours balanced by long silky tannins. These characters are all indicative of the cooler climate conditions in Eden Valley

The Fruit

The Balthasar Shiraz, one of Grant Burge’s Wines of Distinction, is sourced from the Eden Valley region of the Barossa, showcasing elegance and varietal definition from this cooler part of the district. The 2018 vintage was dry but produced great quality thanks to the retention of water in the soils from the rainy months leading up to vintage. The dry, warm conditions were welcomed creating low disease pressure. These warm, dry conditions coupled with cool night-time temperatures produced fruit with exceptional flavour that were harvested at lower degrees of sugar ripeness creating a wine that is vibrant and balanced.

The Winemaking

Fermented in Stainless steel with temperatures reaching 28°C. Pump overs were performed four times a day with reduced pump overs towards the end of fermentation. Gentle pressing was performed by a combination of basket and bag press. Matured for eighteen months in oak. 38% new French hogsheads with the balance matured in a combination of two-to-five year-old French hogsheads and puncheons.

The Wine

Deep, yet bright, purple in colour with a deep, dark red hue. Pure Eden Valley Shiraz on the nose; deep, dark and brooding. Thick set, broad shouldered and a beautiful perfume of blueberries covered in milk chocolate and clove-cinnamon-cedar oak with notes of lifted eucalyptus and white pepper. The palate presents a powerful combination full of rich dark fruit that is very typical of the cooler Eden Valley. A wave of clove-cinnamon-cedar oak mixed with a hint of fresh thyme and a full, round velvety finish.
