Grant Burge is a 5th generation Barossa vigneron. The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in the region can be traced back to 1855
The fruit was sourced from different vineyards within the Barossa. Once harvested it was crushed and de-stemmed prior to being pressed off skins after 7 or 8 days. Both free run and pressings were used in the wine, which was then matured in a combination of American and French oak hogsheads (5% new) for 12 months.
Grant Burge is a 5th generation Barossa vigneron. 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 with his wife Eliza and their two sons, Meshach and Henry.
The 2015 vintage in the Barossa experienced a cool winter with average rainfall. There was good sub-surface moisture leading up to budburst. December and January were cooler than average which helped to maintain healthy vines and acid retention. A reasonably dry February and mild temperatures in March provided good ripening conditions and full flavored wine styles.
