Grant Burge Meshach 2008
The fruit for this iconic wine is handpicked from the Filsell vineyard, where the vines are nearing 100 years old. Smaller parcels are also sourced from even older premium vines in the Barossa to add further complexity to the wine. The age of these vines means Meshach is made from fruit with tremendous concentration and intensity. The 2008 vintage began earlier than expected due to dry conditions; however the ancient old vines produced fruit with exceptional varietal character, concentration and flavour.
