Grant Burge is a Barossa legend whom has made his name by turning out luscious, full-bodied reds from the Barossa Valley. Grant has quite literally tasted more barrels of South Australian Shiraz than you can poke a stick at which shows in the super wines he turns out year on year. The Hayburner is a wine that is dear to his heart because it is named after the horse that Grant rode to school as a little tacker which is why the fruit is so bloody good. Big mulberry aromas and spice finishing big long and strong - a bit like the man himself!
The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed, before fermentation could begin in stainless steel tanks for seven days. After malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to older American and French oak hogsheads for maturation for 10 months before blending and bottling.
Deep red with vibrant purple hues, this wine displays classic Shiraz characters of spiced plum and dark cherry fruit on the nose. The palate is soft and generous, with layers of dark fruit flavours, fruit cake, savoury spices and fine tannins
