Food Pairings for Grant Burge Meshach Shiraz
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. 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 fruit for this Iconic Meshach Shiraz is carefully handpicked from the Filsell Vineyard, where the vines are nearing 100 years old. Smaller parcels are also sourced from even older premium vines in the Barossa to add further complexities to the wine. The age of these vines means Meshach is made from fruit with tremendous concentration and intensity. The 2005 Meshach shows great depth and intensity in the dark red colouring of the wine, together with its youthful purple hues. The wine shows intense lift from the glass with a complex array of aromas including; raspberry coulis, Irish moss, old leather, and some subtle confectionary marshmallow like notes. These aromas are complimented with cocoa powder, milk chocolate, a hint of bitumen, sweeter tar characters and fresh green pine needles. The palate is sumptuous and carries on with flavours of swiss chocolate, savoury spices, raspberry fruit, a hint of toasted oak and bushfire ash. The powerful palate shows a complex combination of flavours, with excellent length and balance; this 2005 Meshach will not disappoint. As with the Meshach’s gone before it, the elegant 2005 vintage should be enjoyed on special occasions and will appeal to the collector in you with this Grant Burge Wines flagship Shiraz’s ageing potential upward of 20 years with careful cellaring.
