Grant Burge Benchmark Shiraz 2011

The Benchmark Shiraz is deep red with purple hues. On the nose there are aromas of raspberry, vanilla, plums and dark chocolate. On the palate the wine is rich and smooth with flavours of raspberry, vanilla and spice. The tannins are soft and well integrated balancing the sweeter ripe fruit aspects of the wine.

Food match: This superbly drinkable and delicious wine matches with grilled and roasted red meats, pasta & salads.

Grape varieties: 100% shiraz

About the Brand

Grant Burge wines was formed in 1988 by Grant and his wife, Helen, and is based in the historic Moorooroo Cellars, on the banks of Jacobs Creek, in the heart of the barossa Valley, 80 kms north of Adelaide. Grant's wine heritage traces back 150 years to his great-great-grandfather, John Burge, who emigrated from England to the area, and has continued down through five Burge generations. The fruit was harvested from growers in the Barossa, and the remainder from respected premium growers in South Australia's Riverland.
