Grant Burge Chardonnay Barossa Barossa Vines 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A bright straw color with green hues, this wine has varietal peach, grapefruit and almond aromas, which follow through on the palate, which is full and rich. Partial malolactic fermentation and time on lees has added buttery overtones and a soft, creamy, mouth-filling texture to the wine. Fresh acidity balances the fullness of the wine and brings a lingering flavor of ripe peaches and grapefruit. This is a complex, unwooded Chardonnay that is a perfect match for a Thai green chicken curry.

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
