The 5th Generation range honours the winemaking endeavours of Grant Burge over five generations while showcasing the exemplary fruit and unrivalled quality produced in our highly acclaimed Barossa region.
The cool and wet conditions followed by warm conditions during summer resulted in a very late vintage. The extended hang time on the vine with increased canopy density due to the wet spring and summer allowed the fruit to attain excellent flavour ripeness, while maintaining good levels of natural acidity.
Deep garnet in colour, this wine has a rich and varied bouquet of blackcurrant and coffee bean with dark chocolate and mint highlighted by lifted earthy characters. The mid-palate is soft and rich with loads of chocolate and berry flavours and well-integrated oak that adds spice to the flavour profile. The palate is long and elegantly structured with oak and Cabernet tannins combining to carry this wine through to a long and flavoursome finish. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to barbecued lamb dishes.
