Grant Burge Wines has a longstanding history in the age old tradition of fortified winemaking. A legacy of unique, aged fortified stock, coupled with a passion for producing premium aged fortifieds, tireless dedication, rigorous viticultural standards and the finest winemaking techniques has allowed Grant Burge to become a household name for Australian fortified wines, achieving worldwide acclaim across the range.

WINEMAKING
The fruit was hand-picked into slotted crates, which are then dried under the sun for approximately three weeks before crushing to a tank press for overnight fermentation. Once pressed, the lightly fermented juice is fortified to 17.0% alcohol to arrest the fermentation. The wine is then matured in small oak for ten years to develop the flavours before blending.

TASTING NOTES
This wine is an example of the traditional Pedro Ximénez style.
Appearance: Golden hues in a dark Tawny colour

Bouquet: Rich aromas of toffee apple, raisins, dark toast, candied orange chocolate, maple syrup and roasted coffee

Palate: Dense flavours of coco powder, black forest cake, salted peanut brittle and burnt figs

Food Pairing: The wine compliments salted caramel ice cream perfectly or works well with strong blue cheese.
