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 2007 Grant Burge Vines Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot has benefitted hugely from an excellent growing season in 2006 that allowed maximum development of varietal characters and concentration of flavours in the Barossa. Consequently this vintage boasts a rich and luscious palate with black cherry, bramble fruit and a hint of liquorice balanced with elegant oak and soft approachable tannins, all topped with a complex and lingering finish. This easy-drinking wine is ready to enjoy now, but will benefit from short term cellaring for added structure. It is an excellent match with beef ragu, barbequed meats and hearty tomato dishes.
