Grant Burge Meshach Shiraz 1992

SKU
GBSH199212 UCAU
Tasting Notes sourced from Grant Burge. 1992 was another exceptional red wine vintage. A very cool and dry summer provided an extended fruit ripening period after a good wet winter. In early March the vines were showing signs of stress after a prolonged dry spell. However, rain at the beginning of vintage meant that the fruit was left on the vine until late March allowing the fruit to fully ripen. The fruit was picked at 14BE. After the wine was crushed it was placed in stainless still fermenters and fermented to a greater degree of dryness before being placed in American oak hogsheads. It was kept in the American oak for a period of two years and kept in the bottle for a further 18 months prior to release. Tasting Notes: According to Grant Burge this wine is very similar in style to the 1990 Meshach - big and powerful yet smooth and round. The nose displays ripe fruit and vanillin oak aromas. The palate is big and rich with good weight and firm tannin structure. Excellent length and concentration. Cellar up to 15 years.

Critic Scores & reviews

  • James Halliday

    "Medium to full red-purple; in typically full-frontal oaky style on the bouquet, but there is lots of fruit to justify that oak. The same play occurs on the palate, with a mix of expansively sweet berry fruit and creamy vanilla oak. Has continued to develop well since its Adelaide Wine Show trophy."

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is about an hour and a half drive to the North of Adelaide, in South Australia and is the oldest wine region in the country, founded by German settlers. The region can be credited with putting Australian wine on the world wine map, thanks to Shiraz, which thrives in the warm climate (though Hunter Valley Semillon also contributed.)

For many years traditionalist wine makers thought the grape variety was best suited to the cooler climates of the Rhone Valley and that the variety would cook in the warmth of the Australian sun. Although South Australian Shiraz is a bigger, beefier wine than its southern French counterpart Syrah, no one can deny the region's propensity to produce world-class wines.

Not only Shiraz is cultivated in Barossa Valley, with other red varieties such as Grenache, Mourvedre (Mataro) and to a lesser extent Cabernet Sauvignon. The white varieties that thrive best seem to be Semillon, Chardonnay and Rhone varietals like viognier, Marsanne and Roussane.

The Valley has many subregions which all have unique terroirs. Seppeltsfield, Marananga, Greenock are to name but a few. With a huge number of wineries in such a small area and a host of accommodation, the region is very popular for wine tourism. In the words of Master of Wine Jancis Robinson, the Barossa Valley became "Australia's quintessential wine region."
