Grant Burge Filsell would have to be the all time Vino Fino pick of Shiraz from both our point of view and that of our customers. We always sell out all the stocks we can get our hands on so it's probably a good idea to get in now on release while there's plenty about. With near century old vines, Grant Burge's Filsell vineyard is considered one of the best in the Barossa Valley and it consistently produces fruit of great intensity and concentration. It certainly has again for the 2019.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The Grant Burge Wines Filsell vineyard of near century old vines is considered one of the best vineyards in the Barossa Valley, and consistently produces fruit of incredible intensity and concentration. Planted in 1920, the Filsell vineyard also produces some of the fruit for the highly acclaimed Meshach Shiraz, making the Filsell Shiraz a sought-after younger brother to loyal followers.

The 2019 vintage was one of the driest we have experienced. Below average winter rainfall, coupled with a dry spring and summer resulted in naturally lower yields across the vineyards. These conditions resulted in rich and concentrated wines, although low in quantity.

Aromas of dark chocolate, mocha, plum with caramel lift. Sweet spice and cacao nib. Although serious Shiraz black fruits show the layers are extended with earth and vanilla. The tannins are firm but fine, with a full weight and texture carrying liquorice, black spice and some juniper. Full with intense flavours, the wine carries through for an intensely long finish.

The wine was matured for eighteen months in a combination of hogsheads and puncheons. 35% was matured in new oak, both French and American. The balance was matured in a combination of one, two and three year-old French oak."


5 Stars & 95/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review, July 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Very deep, dark, saturated red/purple with blackish depths which stain the glass. The bouquet is broodingly deep and mysterious, smoky-char and earth-bound characters, and black fruits galore, black olive and tapenade too. The palate has great depth and texture, the tannins fleshy and coating, but balanced. It has a big future if cellared. An outstanding value shiraz, very Barossa and very shiraz. Drink: 2023 to 2039."


Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Barossa truism. Slick, ripe fruited, ripples with ripe berries, jammy fruit characters, coconut-vanilla cream, round texture, soft tannins, toasty-jam finish. Such massive presence and yet this velvety feel too. Opulent, lush, lavish red done pretty darn well."

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search.
