Tasting Notes

Plum, blackberries and chocolate aromas complement a palate filled with red berry fruit, warm spice and sweet vanilla flavours influenced by high quality French oak. Fine tannins give structure completing a mouth-filling textural wine that drinks brilliantly as a young wine but will continue to develop with careful cellaring for the next 10 years.

Winemakers Note

Grant Burge 2016 Nebu is a great example of this unique Australian blend. This Cabernet Shiraz is a true expression of the varieties and the Barossa; rich, powerful and complex.
