Grant Burge Batch 01 Barossa Shiraz 2012 Dozen

In stock

New vintage of all time top seller!

It's wrong to take pleasure in the misfortunes of others, but when you can bathe your guilt in booze as good as this, you feel a whole lot better.

This is another one of those 'their loss is your gain' situations, an export only label all packed up and ready to go when at the last minute the deal's suddenly off.

But rarely is the booty this good.

Batch 01 is a wine our mate Burgey makes exclusively for the UK and having tasted it we reckon the man should be strung up by his baby-maker for shipping it all off to the Poms.

Not that the wines we get here are shabby – we all know how good they are - but this stuff is simply amazing and now that it's fallen into our hands we want to make sure as many of you get a chance to try it as possible.

This is benchmark Barossa Shiraz, the kind of stuff that extracts multiple pineapples from your wallet and you're happy to see them go.

We don't know when we'll ever see another parcel of this stuff again, so do as we're doing and snap some up while you can.

The Bottom Line:

  • FREE DELIVERY!
  • All-time TOP TOP seller is bringing forward their Newest Vintage! This stuff sells like hotcakes so don't delay...
  • Don't take our word for it... Check out the Ratings and Reviews tab on the 2011 vintage and see what your fellow WineMarketeers are saying
  • SAVE OVER $200 a case. That's over 60% off!
  • Yet another incredible Barossa Shiraz from our man Burge - one of our all time sell-out favourites
  • A little more luxury in this top quality Burge drop compared to say the Batch 28 Shiraz, this one's all Barossa fruit, so no reason not to pick up a case of both
  • Burgey's best Batch fails to despatch! Cancelled Export to the UK... at least there's one bonus to the crisis
  • 5 STAR Halliday rated winery
  • Limited cases at this hotttt price

The 2011 Barossa Shiraz is intense red with bright purple hues.

Palate:

This full bodied Shiraz has aromas of dark berries, plum, rich fruit cake and spicy black pepper. The generous and round palate is complemented by fine grained tannins and a long finish.

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed, then fermented in stainless steel tanks for seven days. Temperatures peaked at 26º C early in the fermentation, then brought down to 22º C, and pumped over three times a day. Free run and pressings were combined for added colour and structure, the wine was then matured in a combination of American and French oak for 12 months.

Highlights:

Batch 1 wines express the true flavours and characters of the Barossa Valley. Special ‘Batches’ of fruit are selected to produce wines that are full flavoured, fruit driven and well balanced ready for you to enjoy.

Winery Information:

Grant Burge is located in the heart of the Barossa Valley in South Australia. Family owned (and proud of it), Grant Burge was formed in 1988 by fifth generation vigneron and winemaker. The Burge family has been in the Barossa since 1855, and Grant continues on the family tradition whilst bringing his winemaking techniques into the 21st century.

Batch 01

No wonder this is number 1. A very tasty full bodied wine with lots of various tastes that hit the palate. A nice spicy finish lingers just long enough to ensure you cannot wait too long for the next glass.

Average Bottle

by Rustybeats - verified purchaser
This wine is a no brainer, easy drinking. But if you are after flavour, skip this bottle. I pull this bottle out when I have guests over that do not fully appreciate wine. There is a hint. I will buy again when the price is lower.

VARIABLE

Overall pretty good although there was a bit of variation between bottles - a couple have been distinctly different to others, being slightly duller and lacking in fullness. Not sure how or why this could happen.
