Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world.. Serenading sleeping vineyards to life»
There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket..

Grant Burge Thorn Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Barossa South Australia
The Eden Valley delineation of Barossa is renowned for producing Australia's finest Riesling, as the cooler climate and higher rainfall, provide ideal conditions for the Riesling grape. Grapes are sourced mainly from thirty year old vines grown to the Thorn Family property and two other superior Eden Valley blocks. Clean, fresh citrus characters feature prominently on the palate, all perfectly balanced with a natural acidity and linear minerality on the long, lingering finish.
Available in cartons of six
Case of 6
$161.50
Grapes are hand picked at healthy levels of baume, to construct a wine of delicacy and finesse. The earlier long cool ripening period of Eden Valley provides outstanding growing conditions and is the raison d'être for some of Australia's most internationally renowned Riesling wines. Half of the fruit is whole bunch pressed to maximise elegance, the balance is crushed directly into fermenters, the juices immediately drained to minimise skin contact. After two days of cold settling, the exclusively free run juices are racked and three cultured yeasts added to initiate a strictly temperature controlled fermentation at 11ºC. After six weeks rest on lees, the finished wine is racked and assembled for bottling.
Pale gold with green tinges. Delicate bouquet of fresh lime, lemons and hints of floral blossom. The flavours of fresh limes and lemons flow into the palate, clean and crisp, acidity and minerality provide a fine, lingering finish. Thorn Vineyard shows excellent balance, integration and length, drinking exceptionally well while young, the perfect choice with natural oysters.

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. Grant Burge Wines is Barossa through and through, the Grant Burge label is your guarantee of quality and integrity.
