- Closure: Cork
The blend is composed of 50% Shiraz, 34% Grenache and 16% Mourvedre. The grapes have been grown on limestone rich soils and matured in French oak. Very deep crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Perfumed nose of raspberry, violets, spice and cedar. Raspberry, liquorice, black pepper and spice flavours are on the palate and supported by dry chalky tannins, which are persistent
Cellar 3-4 years (2008-2009)
The proprietary blend of 50% Shiraz, 34% Grenache, and 16% Mourvedre, the 2003 Olive Hill is a deep ruby/purple-tinged offering with a sweet perfume of raspberries, cherries, plums, Allspice, new saddle leather, and toasty oak. Super-ripe, concentrated, and strikingly elegant with marvelous equilibrium, it can be drunk now or cellared for 6-8 years.
Readers should not confuse Burge Family Winemakers (one of Australia’s finest wineries) with the much larger firm of Grant Burge. Burge Family Winemakers’ old vine estate-bottled offerings, made by the modest, but enormously talented Rick Burge, are classic Barossa wines with extraordinary elegance as well as complex aromatics that combine European subtlety with Australian power.
