Grant Burge is a passionate amateur war historian, with interest spurred by his forebears who fought in two World Wars. This wine honours not just this history and passion, but also Grant’s own historic winemaking career. Trent and Amelia have created The Brigadier Cabernet Sauvignon for their father Grant, who led the industry in determining the ideal Barossan microclimate for this variety.

True cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon; ripe dark fruits and fine tannins.

Sourced from Burge family owned Corryton Burge vineyard in the Eden Valley where the cool microclimate is ideal for growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vibrant blackfruit and cassis aromas are layered with hints of spice, chocolate and leather. Refined dark berry and cassis flavours give way to a rich creamy mid palate and fine tannins.

After completing malolactic fermentation in barrel the wine then remained in oak for a total of 22 months. 100% French oak, 25% of which was new.

Cellaring: Drinking best 10-15 years.

Description

The Burge family name is synonymous with the Australian wine industry. The launch of Corryton Burge by the 6th Generation Brother and Sister duo; Trent and Amelia Burge is the next step in the families’ winemaking journey.

The brand is built upon the rich history surrounding the family property, Corryton Park Homestead. Built in 1845, the vineyards were first planted in the 1851. As a young boy astride his horse, the duo’s father, Grant would often have cause to venture past the majestic old homestead. He had always admired the elegant, Georgian home with its picturesque gardens, surrounded by rolling hills, and daydreamed of one day living there.

Some years later while courting his future wife Helen, Grant found himself once again transfixed by the property. He proclaimed that should the opportunity ever arise, he would buy Corryton Park for her and their future family. Fast forward just a few more years and Corryton Park had two new and very happy owners. While Grant turned his attention to replanting the vineyard, Helen focused on resurrecting the ageing estate to its former glory.
