Grant Burge Filsell Shiraz 2019
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
Grant Burge really needs no introduction. With generations of brilliant Barossa wine making under its belt, it’s a producer that is now a household name. Respected reviewer Huon Hooke raved about the 2019 vintage of the Filsell and we at the Fo’ wholeheartedly agree. With quintessentially complex characteristics of blood plum, dark mocha and sweet spice; you can tuck into this immediately or lay it down for a couple of decades. It sees an impressive 18 months in American and French oak hogsheads and puncheons, 35% of which is brand new. Fruit for the Filsell is selected from the same century old vineyard they use to make their Meshach (which will set you back hundreds of bucks for a single bottle) so it’s understandable why this wine is such a popular drop. Get in quick, folks. This deal is sure to fly out the door.
“Very deep, dark, saturated red/purple with blackish depths which stain the glass. The bouquet is broodingly deep and mysterious, smoky-char and earth-bound characters, and black fruits galore, black olive and tapenade too. The palate has great depth and texture, the tannins fleshy and coating, but balanced. It has a big future if cellared. An outstanding value shiraz, very Barossa and very shiraz.”
Full price $48.00 from the producer.

If you don't know "Grant Burge" I'm not too sure we can be friends. This legendary 5 red star producer is an Australian icon that is recognised and respected on an international level. Located in the Barossa, winemakers Grant Burge and Craig Stansborough craft exquisite wines for every tier of appreciation.
'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
