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 Read more »

  • Grant Burge the Holy Trinity 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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 furthe... Read More

  • Grant Burge Rsz8 Reserve Shiraz 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The 2008 Shiraz has a complex fusion of ripe raspberry and cherry fruit characters. The palate is luscious, full bodied fruit flavors fill the mid-palate, with hints of licorice, plum and subtle vanilla cream. The wine finishes with fine, silky tannins and a lingering fruit-driven finish. Read More

  • Grant Burge Shiraz 2004

    Snoothrank:

    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...
