If you enjoy these notes please have a listen to the groovy wine podcast we did with Grant Burge who is the winemaker.
GRANT BURGE 150TH ANNIVERSARY RELEASE GRENACHE/SHIRAZ/MOURVEDRE 2003 (VINTAGES 67900 | $30.95) Oh how I love this wine … a classic blend of 45% Grenache, 35% Shiraz, and 20% Mourvedre combine to offer amazing intensity. Flavours of black fruit, pepper, and cinnamon spice dominate and linger through a super-long finish. Delicious on its own or with hearty red meat dishes.
GRANT BURGE 150TH ANNIVERSARY RELEASE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2002 (VINTAGES 67884 | $30.95) This is big, full-bodied, and well-structured, opening with a nose of chocolate mint, eucalyptus, and cassis. On the palate, it is much more fruit-forward than the nose would suggest and the beautiful structure makes me think this bottle could easily last 20 years in the cellar, if you can resist opening it sooner!
GRANT BURGE FILSELL OLD VINE SHIRAZ (VINTAGES 987453 | $35.95) Mouth-watering with big ripe cherry and raspberry fruit flavours, balanced with smoky mocha and spice notes. This is comfort in a glass, perfect for warming up chilly winter nights.
GRANT BURGE 10-YEAR-OLD MUSCAT (VINTAGES 58370 | $24.95) A unique and incredibly delicious fortified wine made in a solera system (similar to those used in Sherry-making in Spain). From first sniff, it has intense and enticing aromas of dried fruit, marmalade, caramel, honey, spices and toasted nuts, and it is rich, buttery and satisfying on the palate. Perfect for a cozy, warming drink by the fire, or paired with strong cheeses or chocolate.
GRANT BURGE 20 YEAR OLD TAWNY (VINTAGES 52142 | $54.00) For you virtual shoppers out there, this wine is available through the new Vintages Online program. LCBO tasting note: “Grant Burge 20 Year Old Tawny was awarded the International Trophy for Best Red Fortified in Show & Gold Award at the UK 2004 Decanter magazine wine awards. Made from the classic Barossa blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, it tastes of raisins and toasted nuts – intense, complex, with a long dry finish.
