Food Pairings for Grant Burge 20 Year Old Tawny
*Awarded a Trophy - Decanter World Wine Awards 2007* *Awarded a Gold medal - International Wine Challenge 2006* Decanter, May 2010 "Grant Burge has twice produced the world's best fortified wine, and he is the first winemaker outside of Portugal ever to do so. The Grant Burge 20 year old Tawny port was awarded the prestiguious Decanter International Trophy in 2005 and 2007, topping it's competitors from soutern Europe - traditionally known as home of the world's finest fortified wines." 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. Grant Burge Wines was formed in 1988 by Grant and his wife Helen, and is located in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the banks of Jacobs Creek and is still proudly family owned. Continuing the family tradition, Grant and Helen have now brought the sixth generation into the fold. The prestigious Grant Burge 20 Year Old Tawny is an exceptional mature tawny made from the Barossa's traditional tawny varieties - grenache, mataro and shiraz - and has been blended to an average age of 20 years. This fortified wine is a rich, mature wine showing deep tawny colour, complex rancio characters on the bouquet and excellent integration of spirit. The palate is sweet and mellow but finishes quite dry and shows a harmonious balance of developed fruit characters and oak tannins.
