Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The fruit for this wine is sourced from Miamba vineyard, located at the southern end of the Barossa, near the town of Lyndoch. The Miamba vineyard has a long viticultural history. When Grant Burge purchased the property in 1983, it was completely bare. Careful planting and sustainable practices have returned this block to its former glory.
The aromas exhibit raspberry and liquorice, complemented by warm spices. The palate mirrors the aromas, with medium to full bodied red berry fruits that elegantly melds with the acid and tannin to produce an extremely well balanced wine."

"Grant Burge acquired and replanted the old Miamba vineyard site in 1983. The results since then have been impressive. This wine is typical of the southern Barossa site: bursting with blueberry and blackberry flavours that are framed by robust (‘bolshy’ according to John Saker) tannins. Put it to work with a shepherd’s pie."
