Burge Holy Trinity 2005

External Review:

This hearty, Rhône-like, red wine is named after an Anglican church of the area. It's spicy, packed with mixed dark berries and vanilla. An excellent match to any meat-based cuisine - especially grilled sausages.

Grant Burge is a fifth-generation Barossa vigneron and winemaker. Throughout his career, Grant has been one of the most respected and innovative forces in the Australian wine industry. The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in the region can be traced back to March 1855, when noted tailor John Burge immigrated to the Barossa from Hillcot, near Pewsey in Wiltshire, England with his wife Eliza and their two sons. With help from his sons Meshach and Henry, John’s farm flourished with wheat, sheep and viticulture. His eldest son Meshach continued the farming tradition and was a prominent community leader. He married Emma in the early 1900s and they had eight children. First-born Percival established the Wilsford Winery in 1916, beginning the Burge winemaking tradition. Percival had two sons, Noel and Colin, and Colin and his wife Nancy had one son, Grant. Following in the footsteps of his father and forefathers before him, Grant now carries the winemaking tradition into the 21st century Read less

Wine Advocate ReviewGrant Burge's best known wine, The Holy Trinity, is an SGM blend. The 2003 The Holy Trinity is composed of 39% Grenache, 37% Shiraz, and 24% Mourvedre. It presents an enticing nose of earth, garrigue, sage, lavender, black cherry, and black raspberry. Fleshy, ripe, and full-flavored, it is slightly narrow in the finish. Drink it over the next 10 years.Wine Tasting NotesThe wine is deep purple with crimson hues, and the nose is alive with floral characters, sweet dense spice and dried thyme, a hint of mint and pleasant sweet berry aromas. The palate is complex with delicious quince and floral flavors supported by savoury and earthy spice from the extended maceration. It displays an intensity, texture and structure that makes it an extremely well balanced wine, and it will cellar well for the next 10 years or more. The Holy Trinity matches well with duck and other gamey meat dishes.
