Grant Burge Shiraz-Viognier Barossa Balthasar 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Traditional European winemaking techniques were used for this wine, in particular extended maceration to add more depth of flavour and allow for a softening of tannins. After pressing, 60% of the wine went to new French oak hogsheads, 20% into a new 2,500 litre French oak vat and the balance filled into 2 year old French oak hogsheads. Further to this, the wine was left on fine lees for 6 months, with the barrels then cleaned and re-filled for an extra 9 months of oak maturation.

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
