Grant Burge Icon wines are named in honour of Meshach Burge, and the biblical origins of his name. Abednego, or ‘Servant of Nego’ the Babylonian god of wisdom, brings together the three varieties of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre.

‘This blend is always one that we spend a lot of time fine-tuning. The 2018 vintage is highly regarded in the Barossa; one of those years where you can achieve power and elegance within the one glass. Craig Stansborough, Chief
Winemaker.

95 GOLD POINTS - Halliday Companion 2022

"36.9/34.2/28.9% grenache/shiraz/mourvèdre. Basket pressed and matured 16 months in seasoned 2700L foudre, puncheons and hogsheads. Textbook Barossa GSM, intricately and seamlessly assembled by Craig Stansborough, without a detail out of place. Red and dark berry fruits capture this warm season with definition and verve, thanks to a confident spine of vibrant, tangy acidity. Layers of spice are backed eloquently by large- and small-format dark chocolate oak and superfine tannins. Masterfully engineered for the long haul." Tyson Stelzer
