Five Gold Medals for Grant Burge Wines at Royal Queensland Wine Show

Grant Burge is celebrating an incredible amount of awards received at the Royal Queensland Wines Show last week, with five gold medals, three silver and eight bronze.

The annual show is one of Australia’s oldest and most distinguished wine events, attracting over 3,000 entries from around the country each year.

He proudly commented, “The breadth of success across the portfolio is a great compliment to my winemaking team. The quality in our cellars has never been better and to receive such recognition is very pleasing indeed.”

Gold medal winners include 2005 Thorn Eden Valley Riesling, 2005 Nebuchadnezzar Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon, 2004 Filsell Shiraz, 2004 Miamba Shiraz and the 30 Year Old Tawny.

Silver medals were awarded for 2005 Viognier, 2005 Meshach and 20 YO Tawny, which adds to the gold medal won for the Best Australian Fortified Wine at the recent International Wine Challenge in London.

It is shaping up to be an exciting year with a growing list of accolades, which started with ‘Collection of the Year’ at the Hamburg Wine Salon in Germany, where Grant Burge Wines was again awarded five gold medals, along with the trophy for ‘Red Wine of the Year’ with Filsell Shiraz.

“Our commitment to choosing the best fruit from our Barossa and Eden Valley vineyards, concentrating on continual improvement in all aspects of winemaking ensures we create wines which sit comfortably alongside the best wines in the world.”
