Grant Burge Abednego Shiraz Grenache Mourvèdre 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

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. 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 Abednego completes the Icon trio from Grant Burge Wines; sitting alongside the highly awarded Meshach and Shadrach; Grant’s flagship Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon Wines. The wine is 100% Barossa with fruit sourced from Grant’s own aged perfect vineyards, with average age of 110 years old. The old vines deliver fruit of incredible concentration and depth, giving the resultant wine the ability to develop over many years. The 2004 Abednego is deep crimson in colour with complex aromas of ripe berry fruit, herbal mint and subtle smoky oak spilling from the glass. On the palate this blend of ‘old world’ varieties has an intense concentration of flavours with cherries and spice well integrated with earthy, savoury and dried herb flavours. The wine has a great complexity of flavours with tight grained tannins that give the wine excellent structure and provides a long, satisfying finish. Like all Grant Burge Icon wines, Abednego will continue to mature over the next 10 - 12 years. It is a superb match with gamey duck and rustic lamb dishes.

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
