I’ve got a few Corryton Burge tasting notes on the blog. If you want to check them out or search my site, just head to the blog and use the search function right up the top (it’s in the menu on mobile) 🙌

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 chocolately 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!

It’s been raining here all weekend, but hey, it doesn’t stop us having a picnic! Yep it was on the lounge floor, but that didn’t matter when we had such good wine and food to enjoy 😋

The lovely folks at Corryton Burge sent us over a gift box full of Barossa Valley goodies (thank you Amelia and Trent!) and let’s just say we want to be on the next plane to SA as soon as borders open back up.

We enjoyed both the Pinot Gris (which you can find my notes for on the blog: travellingcorkscrew.com.au/blog/corryton-burge-adelaide-hills-pinot-gris) and the Shiraz.

Make sure to head over to give this new brother & sister duo wine label some loving 🙌

Here are my notes on the 2018 Barossa Shiraz:

It’s a juicy plum red colour in the glass. On the nose it’s full of aromas of fresh berries and rich mocha notes. While in the mouth it’s rich and opulent the chocolate covered cherries and chocolate flavours. It went incredibly well with our triple cream Brie and the Berry Fresh freeze dried raspberries 🥰
