Grant Burge's extensive network of vineyards and growers guarantees access to the finest quality fruit, harvests of fully ripe Shiraz exhibiting outstanding flavour and balance. Burge has taken an active interest for decades in developing and nurturing sites that allow for maximum development of varietal Shiraz characters and concentration of flavour. Burge selects the best grapes, much of the fruit from traditional winemaking families. Fruit is crushed, de-stemmed and transferred to fermenters for a week of vinification. Upon completion of malolactic, batches are transferred to older American and French oak hogsheads for ten months maturation and the final assemblage.
Deep red with vibrant, youthful purple hues. A complex nose showing soft plum fruit aromas and a touch of sweet vanilla. The palate is soft and generous, bursting with dark berry fruit and festive cake characters, savoury yet subtle peppered spice adding to the complexity. A generous wine with layers of flavour over a bed of fine tannins.
