Grant Burge Balthasar Eden Valley Shiraz 2015
Grant Burge Balthasar Eden Valley Shiraz 2015 is ruby red in colour with intense violet hues. It has powerful aromas of black pepper and nutmeg, dusting chocolate and ripe plums are accompanied by notes of vanilla and smoked meats from the French oak. The rich and generous full-bodied palate is dense with flavours of spice, plums and raspberries, while the elegant, fine tannins give balance, power and length.
The soft silky tannin profile of this wine makes it an ideal accompaniment to a multitude of pork, game and red meat dishes.
"Wow, the colour of Dior sauvage nail polish - a deep inky red; the fruit profile is all wild berries and black plums dusted in cocoa. Velvety-smooth tannins glide across the full-bodied palate, and the oak (French, 44% new, aged 18 months) is superbly integrated. Great definition and poise."
