The Story

Meshach Burge was Grant Burge's Great Grandfather, and the man who began the Burge winemaking tradition. Meshach was the eldest son of John and Eliza Burge. Aged 11, he came to the Barossa Valley from Hillcot in Wiltshire, England, with his family establishing a thriving viticultural wheat and sheep property near Lyndoch. In 1865, under the watchful eye of his father, Meshach began making the first wines in the Burge winemaking history. In tribute, our finest Shiraz bears his name.

The Winemaking

The award-winning Grant Burge Meshach is our flagship Shiraz, only released in vintages of outstanding quality, handpicked from near century old vines from the famed Barossa Valley. The fruit for this wine has tremendous concentration and intensity, making Meshach a powerful, yet beautifully balanced wine.
The wine was fermented in a combination of stainless-steel statics and traditional concrete open fermenters with header boards. Temperatures were allowed to reach 28°C. Minimal pump overs were performed on the concrete open fermenters. Pump overs on the stainless-steel fermenters were performed four times-a-day and these were reduced toward the end of fermentation. Gentle pressing was performed by a combination of basket and bag press. Matured for eighteen months in French hogsheads. 18% in new and the balance in one to five year-old.
