Product Description

Grant Burge 5th Gen Merlot

VINTAGE: Current Vintage (enquires welcome)


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 WINEMAKING
The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed prior to being fermented in stainless steel tanks for 6 -10 days. A cooler ferment of 22º C - 26º
C was maintained with three pump overs per day, reducing to 2 and then 1 per day nearing the completion of fermentation on skins.
30% of the blend completes MLF in new American and European Puncheons (500ltr) with the rest of the blend completing MLF
in tank. Both the components are combined and the final wine is matured in American and European puncheons for 18 months.

Colour: Deep ruby red in colour

Aromas:this wine has lifted aromas of vibrant dark cherries, red berry fruit and fragrant lavender all supported by hints of vanilla and spice.

Palate: The palate is full and ripe with rich blackberry fruit, plum and savoury notes along with delicate integrated tannins all enhancing
the softness of the fruit flavours. The multi-layered depth of flavours and long lingering finish give this wine an impressive length and structure.

Cellaring: This wine will benefit from cellaring for up to 5 years,

Food Match: is a delicious match for a variety of pasta dishes and red meats
