The Story

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. In tribute, our finest Shiraz bears his name.

Written Notes

Coming after the slightly disappointing 2003, this is much more generous and approachable. Spice, red berries, cigar box notes, hints of florals. An exuberant style exhibiting the first signs of early complexity. Balanced, seamless, lengthy. Very fine tannins. This is a really good wine. Just stunning. Love it. 95
