This vintage is a classic example of Benchmark Chardonnay. Lemon, green in colour with fresh aromas of citrus fruit, honey and subtle stone fruits. The palate is soft and creamy with honeydew melon and nuances of sweet spiced cream along with a fine, natural acidity. The fresh citrus flavours all have great length, with good texture on the palate from the time spent on lees. Best suited to creamy fish dishes, chicken salads or just on its own.
A fifth-generation Barossa vigneron, Grant has been one of the most respected and innovative forces in the Australian wine industry. The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in the region can be traced back to March 1855, when noted tailor John Burge immigrated to the Barossa from Hillcot, near Pewsey in Wiltshire, England with his wife Eliza and their two sons.
Grant believes if the right varieties are grown in the right soils, and vines are managed to produce low to moderate yields, the vines will produce the premium quality fruit needed to produce exceptional wines. With the combination of the best terroirs, the best climate and the best winemaking techniques, the natural result is the best wine.
