2015 FILSELL SHIRAZ

95 points James Halliday 2018 Australian Wine Companion

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

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/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

Different batches of fruit were crushed and fermented separately. Primary fermentation on skins occurred for approximately eight days, with a couple of small batches undergoing natural yeast fermentation in small open fermenters for a further week. The wine was pumped over three times a day and the skins were pressed gently before the free-run and pressed wine was transferred to oak to finish fermentation. The wine was matured in a combination of French and American oak for 21 months. 

The Wine

The 2015 Filsell Shiraz has an incredible depth of colour, deep purple red to the core. The nose displays aromas of blueberry, plum, dark chocolate, mocha and vanilla. The sensual, full-bodied palate offers rich flavours of dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The tannins provide excellent balance and structure to the richness of the palate. This is a highly expressive Filsell, which certainly makes a statement. While approachable now, this wine can be confidently cellared for 20 years or more after release. Partner it with rich beef dishes such as a tenderloin or slow-cooked beef cheeks.

2013 CORRYTON PARK CABERNET SAUVIGNON

95 points James Halliday 2018 Australian Wine Companion

The Story

At the southern end of the Barossa, near Mount Crawford, a magnificent property called Corryton Park, established over 150 years ago, stands proudly with the entrance marked by two grand pillars. It was established by Grant Burge as a super-premium Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard that was to become unrivalled within the Barossa. 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

The 2013 Corryton Park Cabernet Sauvignon is a combination of excellent fruit sourced from both the Corryton Park vineyard and specially selected complementary parcels from the Barossa Valley floor. The 2013 vintage provided extremely dry conditions throughout the entire growing season. A cool, dry winter continued to a dry spring and summer, leading to lower than average yields. On the positive, low-yielding vineyards led to some sensational quality, particularly the reds that are showing great colour and mighty structures.

The Winemaking

The Corryton Park vineyard is always picked as small, separate batches that are crushed and fermented separately to highlight the innate variations between different clonal plantings and microclimates across the vineyard. After primary fermentation, the wines are carefully evaluated and several parcels are selected to remain on skins for up to 30 days for a process called extended maceration, which sees the wines develop richness of flavour and softening of tannins. After pressing and racking, the wine was matured in French oak hogsheads for a minimum of 18 months.

The Wine

In 2013, Corryton Park produced purely varietal Cabernet wines, deep plum in colour and richly perfumed with aromas of blackcurrant, confectionary spearmint leaves, cedar wood characters and woody spice with underlying aromas of pine needle, vanilla and hints of liquorice and new leather. The palate is surprisingly soft for Cabernet; this is a fleshy, juicy Cabernet with refined tannins and acidity. A complex wine with great length and balance, the 2013 Corryton Park will confidently develop with careful cellaring for up to 10 years.

2013 THE HOLY TRINITY GRENACHE SHIRAZ MOURVÈDRE

The Fruit

The Holy Trinity is a traditional blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. The fruit for this wine is 100% Barossa grown, predominantly handpicked from old, dry-grown vines, which range from 50 to 120 years of age. The 2013 vintage provided extremely dry conditions throughout the entire growing season. A cool, dry winter continued into a dry spring and summer, leading to lower than average yields. On the positive, low-yielding vineyards led to some sensational quality, particularly in the reds showing great colour and mighty structures. This release is a blend of 57% Grenache, 30% Shiraz and 13% Mourvèdre.

The Winemaking

After crushing, the juice was fermented on skins for seven to eight days depending on the variety and unique qualities of each batch. Once fermentation was complete, selected parcels were either pressed into stainless steel for settling or left in their original fermenters for extended maceration for three to four weeks on skins. The wines were regularly tasted to determine when to finish maceration, and once the desired tannin and flavour structure were achieved, it was gently pressed and transferred to oak. A combination of seasoned larger format Foudre vats (2500L) along with French oak puncheons (500L) were used for this wine with a total of 18 months' maturation prior to bottling. The larger oak format retains freshness of fruit with all the benefits of ageing in oak, with a softening of the tannins and maturation of the aromas and flavours.

The Wine

The 2013 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 awash with ripe plums, Christmas pudding and liqueur cherries with sweet spices and a hint of savoury, earthy notes that add to the complexity. The palate is rich and juicy with vibrant flavours of fresh plums and berries, chai tea and fruitcake, with fine tannins that run the length of the palate. The dense, mouth-filling mid-palate and long, textural finish combine to create a wine that is rich and elegant, sweet and savoury, and will sit beautifully on any table now or cellar gracefully for the future.

2015 BALTHASAR SHIRAZ

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 cool winter and dry warm spring in 2015 produced high-quality red wines with great colour, concentration and structure.

The Winemaking

Four individual parcels from three premium Eden Valley vineyards were picked separately with each batch receiving a unique fermentation regime. Extended time on skins added to the depth of flavour and silky tannin structure. After pressing, the wine was transferred to new (50%) and older French oak hogsheads for 21 months' maturation.

The Wine

Ruby red in colour with intense violet hues, the 2015 Balthasar Shiraz is a sultry, brooding and complex wine with decadent and luscious characters. Powerful aromas of black pepper and nutmeg, dusting chocolate and ripe plums are accompanied by notes of vanilla and smoked meats from the French oak.

The rich and generous full-bodied palate is dense with flavours of spice, plums and raspberries, while the elegant, fine tannins give balance, power and length. A benchmark Eden Valley Shiraz, this wine is immediately approachable yet can be cellared for up to 15 years. The soft silky tannin profile of this wine makes it an ideal accompaniment to a multitude of pork, game and red meat dishes.
