Grant Burge Balthasar Shiraz 2016 750ml
A great influence of these ancient times was Balthasar, one of the three wise men, who brought the gift of myrrh to the newborn King. An elegant, highly expressive Shiraz with rich fruit and chocolate flavours balanced by long silky tannins was created in honor of these noble men.
Tasting Notes: Deep, yet bright, purple in colour with a deep, dark red hue. On the nose, raspberry and blackberry fruit is surrounded by aromatic dark spices and black pepper. Complemented by oak derived spice with a hint of vanilla. The palate shows bright raspberry and fresh black fruits, with milk chocolate, dark spice, vanilla, luscious fruit cake and long, lingering velvety tannins. A wine that displays a fine balance between elegance and power. A benchmark Eden Valley Shiraz, this wine is immediately approachable yet can be cellared for up to 15 years.
Origin: Barossa Valley, South Australia
