Grant Burge the Holy Trinity 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Fifth generation viticulturalist and winemaker Grant and his wife Helen founded Grant Burge Wines in 1988 and based it at the historic Moorooroo Cellars, on the banks of Jacob's Creek. Grant spent his formative years apprenticing under his father Colin at Wisford. He then teamed up with another passionate young winemaker, Ian Wilson, in 1976 to transform Krondorf Winery into one of the major innovative wineries in Australia. Over the past 35 years, Grant has acquired 13 prized vineyards including Miamba, Filsell, The Holy Trinity and Rocla vineyards. Today he has unrivalled access to the best quality Barossa fruit from vines up to, and well over, a century old. He's developed one of the most extensive networks of premium-quality vineyards in Australia, strategically positioned in the Barossa Valley.

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

Brick red in color with crushed red cherries, raspberries and subtle floral note on the nose. A very well balanced wine with a crushed velvet tannin structure, ripe red fruit flavors, a little Turkish delight and a hint of leather and oriental spices (cumin, coriander seed and cardamom) in the long finish. I believe this wine will develop further layers and complexity with age, becoming almost silky smooth and luscious.

The Holy Trinity Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre has a deep garnet color with a touch of purple in the rim. The nose provides earthy / gamey aromas with a core of warm cherries and black raspberries plus some pepper and aniseed.
