Grant Burge Zerk Semillon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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. 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 Semillon fruit used for the Grant Burge Zerk Semillon/Viognier come predominately from the Zerk Vineyard, owned by fourth generation Barossan, Robert Zerk and his wife Janine. As the vines are over 70 years old, they produce fruit with great depth, flavour and complexity. As a result the Semillon/Viognier boasts a rich, round and mouthfilling palate with fresh fruit flavours and hints of shortbread from the oak and lees contact. It is golden straw in colour with a greenish hue. This is a beautifully balanced wine with fresh acidity which also lends generous length of flavour and a clean finish. The Grant Burge Zerk Semillon/Viognier is a delicious match with full-flavoured fish, lighter meats and mild spicy Asian dishes, a brilliant choice for garden parties or evenings shared with guests.

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
