User Reviews for Grant Burge Barossa Vines Sauvignon Blanc

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, 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 Grant Burge Vines Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw in colour, emphasising its delicate and and crisp quality. The wine exhibits strong varietal characters of tropical fruits and passionfruit on the nose with green melons and a hint of lemon citrus. The palate is rich and full flavoured with guava and subtle citrus tones, making this a wonderful wine to enjoy with light meals or seafood starters. The 2008 crop has produced a wine which is balanced with fresh crisp acidity which leads to a vibrant, clean finish and so is most enjoyable in its youth.
