One of the legendary reds of the Barossa, Filsell has always been a celebration of old vine Shiraz and deliberately built in a bold, and compellingly rich style, with decades of history showcasing its consistency.
A ball of concentration, from the black fruit flavours, chocolate, licorice and tar on the full-bodied palate to the integrated oak... and yet it doesn't drag you down. This will reward the patient, yet with a suppleness that makes it approachable in its youth.

How's it taste?

Displaying aromas of mocha and spiced blackberry. Crammed with dark plums and chocolate with a long finish, persistent tannins and dense by the richness and sweetness of fruit.

Who made it?

Family owned and drawing on five generations of history in the famed Barossa Valley, Grant Burge wines is a bastion of well made, value for money wines. Drawing on depth of experience in the region, Grant Burge and his wife Helen established the brand in 1988 and have developed a formidable range of wines across a broad spectrum of price points. The history of the Burge family and their long association with winemaking in the region can be traced back to March 1855, when noted tailor John Burge immigrated to the Barossa from Hillcot, near Pewsey in Wiltshire, England with his wife Eliza and their two sons. John worked as a winemaker at Hillside Vineyards and his love of viticulture was passed onto his son Meshach, who continued the tradition making his first wine in 1865, while becoming a prominent community leader. Meshach married Emma in 1883 and they had eight children. First-born Percival established the Wilsford Winery near Lyndoch in 1928. Percival had two sons, Noel and Colin, and Colin and his wife Nancy had one son, Grant. Following in the footsteps of his father and forefathers before him, Grant carried the winemaking tradition into the 21st century. Grant Burge Wines came under the ownership of the Accolade Wines' family of brands in 2015. Since then, the winery has flourished both nationally and internationally.
