Grant Burge Icon wines are named in honour of Meshach Burge, and the biblical origins of his name. The great grandfather of founder Grant Burge, he made the Barossa Valley home in 1855, beginning an enduring family winemaking tradition.

‘Comfortably in the top three Meshachs ever made. A reflection of one of the great Barossa vintages’, Craig Stansborough, Chief Winemaker.

Intensely rich, deep, dark violet in colour. Dense, powerful and delightfully elegant with dominating aromatics of cinnamon, clove, dark chocolate, black pepper and mulberry on the nose. The small amount of whole bunch fermentation provides a hint of spice that sits on top of the wine like a garnish. The concentration and power are beautifully balanced with layers of blackberry, coffee bean and dark chocolate. The wine has serious grunt, while having a lovely drive of acidity that will support the wine as it ages long in to the future. It has all the hallmarks of a classic, rich Barossa shiraz with undeniable vibrancy and freshness. An  outstanding wine from an outstanding vintage.

With careful cellaring this wine will reward you with peak drinking between 2030-2040.

"Deep crimson. Beautiful classic Barossa Shiraz with intense dark plum, praline, paneforte aromas and roasted chestnut, wax polish, chinotto notes. Richly concentrated and vigorous with abundant dark plum, blackberry, mulberry fruits, fine plentiful chocolaty/ grainy textures and mocha, espresso oak complexity. Finishes chocolaty firm with persistent tannins and integrated mineral acidity. Superb barrel work. 14.5% alc Drink 2023 – 2045 98 points"

95 Gold Points - Halliday Companion 2021

"60+ yo vines with around 18 months in a combination of new and older French and American oak. A wine with undoubted richness and power, but there's a controlled, almost taut feel about it as well. There's plenty of ripe fruit and oak, but there's also a minerally quality running through it with firm, but not overwhelming, tannin keeping a tight rein." Steven Creber Published 01 August 2020
