- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
This is one of the last icon wines to be released from the near perfect 2002 vintage. Dedicated to Grant Burge’s Great Grandfather, Meshach Burge who ignited the family’s passion for winemaking, the fruit for Meshach is handpicked from the Filsell Vineyard, where the vines are almost 100 years old, along with small portions of fruit selected from even older premium vines in the Barossa. The wine was matured in a combination of American (83%) and French (17%) oak hogsheads for 20 months and then bottle aged for a further two and a half years before release.
An outstanding Meshach.
Very deep black crimson colour with black crimson hue – the colour is holding up well. The nose is perfumed and evolves slowly to reveal complex aromas of cedar, liquorice, plum, black pepper and spice, finishing with a dark chocolate end note. Mouthfilling palate with the complexity expected from this benchmark wine. Layers of spice, black pepper, cedar and plum followed by a layer of white and black pepper with vanilla and anise. A powerful performance. Fine grained tannins, excellent balance, with a very long aftertaste of anise, dark chocolate, plum and blackberry.
Cellar 3-4 years (2010-2011)
The 2002 Shiraz “Meshach” is the flagship of the winery. The fruit is from the oldest portion of the Filsell vineyard with vine age close to 100 years. It was aged in French and American oak for 20 months and given another 30 months of bottle age prior to release. It delivers a splendid bouquet of smoky oak, scorched earth, pencil lead, violets, bacon, and blueberry. It has outstanding depth, complexity, and gobs of flavor. It has enough structure to evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now.
