Burge Family Winemakers D & OH 2004
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
|Brand||Burge Family Winemakers|
With a parcel of fruit remaining from the G3 blend, and some top-quality fruit from younger Grenache and Shiraz plantings, Rick decided to bottle the 'D & OH', a blend of 74% Shiraz and 26% Grenache. Like all of Rick's wines, it is fruit-driven, rich and flavorsome, yet also elegant and stylish. It is a superb example of classic Southern Barossa Shiraz and Grenache: not as intensely inky-black and jammy as Northern Barossa wines, but more refined, with lean, supple tannins working perfectly with acid, alcohol, oak and rich ripe fruit.
Smooth in texture, with a gamy edge to the ripe blackberry and currant flavors. Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2009. 480 cases made.
