Grant Burge Shiraz 2005

Member Review by Phreaker:

The color is dark crimson, on the nose sweet plum, dark cherry and stewed fruit characters. The dense stewed fruit flavors carry through to the palate, with hints of vanillin, fine smokey oak. silky smooth tannins and a fantastic mouth feel, with great length makes this a great wine for the money and my favorite 2004 in the sub $30 price range This wine is drinking well now, 2010-2014

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

Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2004 Shiraz "Filsell" is a single vineyard, old vine cuvee which was barrel-fermented and aged for 18 months in American oak. Purple in color, it exhibits aromas of cedar, spice box, tobacco, blueberry, and blackberry. It has ample ripe fruit, good depth, and enough structure to evolve for several years.
