Grant Burge Meshach 2012
Meshach Burge was Grant Burge's Great Grandfather, and the man who began the Burge winemaking tradition. Aged 11, he came to the Barossa Valley from Hillcot in Wiltshire, England, with his family establishing a thriving viticultural wheat and sheep property near Lyndoch. In 1865, under the watchful eye of his father, Meshach began making the first wines in the Burge winemaking history. This wine a tribute to this man.
The 2012 Meshach is a very complex wine, with red colour and purple hints. The aromas are a combination of plum, mulberries, dark chocolate, accompanied by cocoa powder and cinnamon cake. The palate is textural and richly flavoured, where dark chocolate, riper red berries are complemented by spices and earthly characters. The supple yet structured tannins create a powerful foundation to give the wine exceptional length and structure.
A truly distinctive Meshach Shiraz from an outstanding vintage, this wine will age gracefully over the next 15 years.
