A big thank you to brother and sister duo, Amelia & Trent Burge for sending us their 2019 Corryton Burge Percival Norman Barossa Shiraz to taste.
We cracked into it last night once Baby TC was down and we very much enjoyed this super refined and elegant Shiraz.
Percival is Amelia & Trent’s Great Grandfather who was an entrepreneur in his time. He was a well known writer and poet alongside starting the first family winery during the depression.
The Shiraz grapes come from multiple vineyards across the western, central and southern Barossa.
Firstly it’s got an amazingly rich, beautiful purple colour. I found the nose to be super chocolatey which my senses absolutely loved. Chocolate mixed with red & black berries. In the mouth it’s powerful yet super refined with a wonderfully long finish. Highly enjoyable. $45/bottle.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.All opinions are based on my own taste buds.
Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
