The third release of Grant Burge Nebu Cabernet Shiraz 2018. The classic 2018 season was kind to both Barossa for Cabernet and Shiraz. The majority of fruit for this wine comes from the Southern Barossa. The Cabernet Sauvignon portion was sourced from the outstanding Cameron Vale vineyard, with the Shiraz picked from the 100-year-old Filsell vineyard adding to the pedigree of the wine.
Grant Burge Icon wines are named in honour of Meshach Burge, the great grandfather of founder Grant Burge who began an enduring family winemaking tradition, and the biblical origins of his name. Nebu is named after King Nebuchadnezzar who received the pilgrims Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego, and presents the ultimate Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
Grape VarietyCabernet Shiraz
Red - big, bold, full-bodied
There is no holding back on the palate, with rich and powerful fruit. Lots of dark red fruits dominating the middle palate, with notes of chocolate layered in the background. Brilliantly balanced with warm spice and sweet vanilla, that are influenced by the oak usage and a firm tannin structure.
Hard cheeses, roasted red meats and rich chocolate desserts.
