GRANT BURGE MESHACH SHIRAZ 2001
Skilful winemaking; a fusion of sweet black fruits and oak; fine tannins, balance and length; great finesse Rating 95. Drink 2016.” James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2006“In this warm vintage it's ripe and gooey, dense with delicious cherry pie, blackberry and licorice flavors that persist through a long, glorious finish.

Rating 95. Drink 2019”
