Product Description

5th Generation Cabernet Merlot

Region: Barossa

Winemaker: Grant Burge

Vintage: Current Vintage (Enquiries Welcome)

Winemaker

The 2012 Cabernet Merlot is a harmonious blend of two classic varietals.

Aroma Ripe blackcurrant and cassis fruit from the Cabernet with supple, redcurrant and dark plum flavours from the Merlot.

Palate Rich cassis, dark chocolate and red berry fruits are all beautifully interwoven with a soft silky blueberry core. Hints of spice, black pepper and tobacco give the wine a depth of flavour and richness, which is all supported by fine tannins and spicy oak.

Food Match The elegant, refined structure of this wine makes it a great match with a wide range of meat dishes including lamb cutlets, back strap and roast  beef.

5th GENERATION
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 FRUIT
The 2012 vintage produced extremely favourable conditions with mild and dry, day time temperatures and cool nights producing perfect ripening conditions. This is reflected in the overall quality of all our red wines which have outstanding aromatics and ripe fruit characters, all balanced by superb tannin structures

Winemaking
After crushing and de-stemming, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks on skins for six to seven days to bring out the maximum colour and flavour. After initial fermentation the wine was transferred to a combination of French and American hogsheads for 15 months to build complexity, structure and balance before bottling.
