2018 Grant Burge GB32 Chardonnay

Recommendations

Who said that budget Chardonnay needs to be unfun?

This Grant Burge Chardonnay is such a likeable wine. There's a hint of nectarine, a brush with a honeysuckle and then everything is delivered with a fresh finish.

Easy, uncluttered Chardonnay.

How's it taste?

Bright aromas of peach, melon and pineapple with hints of honey and toasty oak. The palate is lusciously layered with ripe stonefruit and citrus interwoven with oak characters for a creamy mouthfeel. Good acidity provides structure and balance and leads to a fresh finish.

How was it made?

Using Chardonnay grapes from premium South Australian regions, the wine made with minimal oak to maximise freshness.

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.
