Grant Burge Filsell Old Vine 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This exceptional Barossa Shiraz is rich ruby in colour with complex aromas of dark chocolate, rich spices and ripe raspberries plus vanilla bean and a touch of mint. The palate exhibits flavours of raspberry, black plum and kirsch combined with toasted oak. The wine is dense and complex; has long chewy tannins and a velvety intensity of flavours that show excellent persistence and length. Deserving of an equally impressive food match, the Filsell is well suited to dishes such as roast beef with a rich tomato ragu or rare kangaroo fillet with a garlic polenta mash.

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
