94 Points, James Halliday
The blend percentages are not given, but the swapping of grenache for shiraz in first place does change the dynamics with riper red plum fruit to the fore on the soft, medium-bodied palate. Excellent mouthfeel and balance.
VARIETALS: 100% Syrah
Fifth-generation winemaker Grant Burge is a master of Shiraz. The 2009 is classic Burge Barossa with layers of blackberry, plum and black cherry with smoky cloves and dark chocolate. Dry and delectably mouthfilling, with impressive tannins and a ripe fruit core. Enjoy tonight with spaghetti and meatballs in a spicy BBQ sauce.
