This Iconic Wine Range Is A New Kind of Holy Water

The origins of the Grant Burge Icon range are inspired by the founder’s great-grandfather.

No, not literally holy water, but you may have a divine experience once the wine hits your lips.



The winery has been producing beautifully distinct Barossa wines since 1865, and the latest release of 2013 vintage is testament to the craftsmanship that warrants a decade of being rated a five-star winery by James Halliday.



Where the biblical inspiration is drawn from starts with the family. The Icon wines are named in honour of Meshach Burge, the great grandfather of founder Grant Burge, and the biblical origins of his name – Meshach and Shadrach – are both pilgrims in the bible which tells of how three men refused to bow to a gold image of the King of Babylon.



Grant Burge Meshach ($199) is the flagship Shiraz of the Grant Burge portfolio, crafted from premium grapes handpicked from near-century old Barossa vineyards. The powerful red hits the nose with dark chocolate, black forest cake, cherry, liquorice and hints of ripe plum. The palate is full-bodied with dark chocolate that appears laced with spice and an earthy character paired with a textural long finish of subtle fruity sweetness.

Grant Burge Shadrach ($104.99) is a Barossa vineyard local that is complex in flavour and rich by nature. The depth of colour in the Cabernet Sauvignon indicates at a glance, expectations of unique dark berries, hints of vanilla and dried autumn leaves on the nose. The bouquet is paired elegantly with a full-bodied palate of cigar box flavours and red berries and finished with firm tannins to allow for a harmonic balance between earthy and rounded notes of fragrant berry.



Both the Grant Burge Icon Meshach Shiraz 2013 and Grant Burge Icon Shadrach Cabernet Sauvignon are now available at both major and independent retailers.
