Grant Burge Gb 32 Chardonnay 2008

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 Chardonnay shows bright straw colouring with a tinge of green. The nose is an array of fruit flavours, showing ripe stone fruits, fresh herbaceous tones and subtle florals. The palate is delightful and elegant with flavours following on from the nose- ripe stone fruits, florals and hints of almond kernel. A well rounded mouthfeel, with a creamy texture which is in part due to the partial malolactic fermentation; the wine finishes with lingering stone fruits and clean acid. This Chardonnay is generous in fruit flavour and therefore suited to fuller flavoured dishes, such as baked snapper with steamed asparagus, oven roasted tomatoes with chicken breast, or even richer, spicier dishes.

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
