Grant Burge 5th generation Cabernet Merlot (2013)

New

Deep garnet in colour this wine has a rich and varied bouquet of blackcurrant, cassis and dark fruitcake with milk chocolate and after dinner mints highlighted by lifted herbal characters. The mid-palate is soft and rich with dark fruit flavours and well integrated oak that adds spice to the flavour profile. The palate is long and elegantly structured with oak and cabernet tannins combining to carry this wine through to a long and flavoursome finish.

    5th GENERATION Grant Burge is a 5th generation Barossa vigneron.

    WINEMAKING After crushing and de-stemming, most of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks on skins for 7 days to bring out the maximum colour and flavour, with a few of the ferments left on skins for up to 30 days to develop softness and complexity. The wine was then transferred to barrel to complete malolactic fermentation after pressing. All of the wine was then matured in predominantly French oak hogheads for 14 months.
