Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Nearly a decade ago, Grant Burge embarked on his greatest venture since the introduction of Grant Burge Wines – the establishment of a stunning new vineyard on some of the highest land suitable for viticulture in South Australia. Just after the start of the new millennium, the first vines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a smattering of Petit Verdot, were planted over part of an historic estate, Corryton Park near Mount Crawford, high above the southern end of the Barossa Valley.

The history of Corryton Park goes back more than 160 years when the land was first purchased in 1845 by noted South Australian pastoralist, Mr David Randall. Many owners later Grant Burge bought the property and, as he said at the time: “Corryton Park is being established as a 20 year project to produce premium wine grapes of great intensity and maturity. I have no illusions for this vineyard for at least another 10 years.” Today, the premium Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from Corryton Park is of such exceptional quality it has been chosen to form the backbone and heart of an iconic Grant Burge wine – his premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Shadrach. Already, the wine has been awarded trophies and heralded as one of the Top 100 wines in Australia.

To understand the Grant Burge philosophy it is worth going back to the early days of Grant Burge the winemaker. As he recalls today: “I have had years of experience to produce my latest Shadrach. That experience is based theories to produce the finest in Cabernet Sauvignon which go back to the late 1970s and early 1980s"

As a fifth generation member of a great winemaking and grape growing dynasty that has been part of the Barossa since 1855, Grant Burge's commitment to the Barossa is absolute. He strongly believes fine wines are born in the vineyard, and theat the vineyard is the cradle of wine quality. With this in mind, Grant has carefully selected his source vineyards for their suitability to the individual varieties grown at each.
