Grant Burge Nebuchadnezzar 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is a drier, more austere style, showing a deep red colour with a complex nose of stewed fruit, prunes, spices and ripe raspberries. The fruit flavours carry over to the palate which is big and intense with plenty of flavour and a big mouth-feel. The fruit and oak integration is well developed, giving an intensity to the palate and a long finish with fine tannins.

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

The wine has a nice bright color, but not the color most Shiraz I've had from Australia. This is a blend from Barossa Valley and haven't had enough tastings to figure out what makes a Barossa Valley Shiraz distinctive from other areas. Bright fruit, cherry and earthy flavors come through. Reminds me of an Italian wine like a Chianti, Sangiovese or Barbera livened up with hint of port. A good buy at 17.00, but I wouldn't pay the 31.00 listed online.
