Wine Of The Week – Grant Burge 20 Year Old Tawny

April 27, 2011 9:13 am - Posted by Jody in Drink

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

Winemaking Notes:

A solera-based system is used, enabling us to consistently release wines of high quality. A limited quantity of 20 Year Old Tawny is drawn for bottling each year and the barrels topped up with selected younger wine. This exceptional mature tawny is made from the Barossa’s traditional tawny varieties – grenache, mataro and shiraz – and has been blended to an average age of 20 years.

Fantastic, tangy rancio nose and superb concentration. Rich – very rich – but all in balance, with voluptuous sweetness, exquisite poise and a very long finish.
