Editors notes

The Burge name is synonymous with the Barossa. The Burge family can trace their roots back 6 generations to some of the first settlers of the region, and today the Grant Burge winery is one of the most recognisable in the Barossa region. The name was sold in 2015 to a large corporation, however the family retained their original lands and continue to make wine. Today these wines are made by 6th generation Burge winemakers Trent and Amelia, assisted by their father Grant. While they can no longer use their father's name, the tradition of amazing winemaking lives on in his children.

The wines are sourced from lands surrounding the famous Corryton Park, owned by the Burge family and built in 1845. Vines were first planted there in 1851, making it one of the first estates in Australia, let alone the Barossa.

Imminently shareable, this full bodied yet balanced wine has chocolate, coffee and ripe raspberry aromas. A palate of juicy raspberry and mocha is rounded off by subtle oak and silky, soft tannins.

Australia

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.

Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.

Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.

With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.

South Australia

If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.

Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!

Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.

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."

About the brand Corryton Burge

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. Now, Corryton Park Homestead is the central place the family comes together, family weddings and milestone birthdays amongst the events celebrated there. It is a place where friends and family come together to share the joy of wine and has become the centrepiece of, and inspiration behind, Corryton Burge wines. Our roots stretch back six generations to one of the original settler families of the Barossa Valley. Wine isn't just something we make, its part of who we are. We don't work in the industry, we live it. Every single day. With Corryton Burge, we haven't just made great wine, we've put our heart and soul into it.
