Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Rick Burge’s last bottling, of a red to commemorate 90 years of continuous winemaking by 3 generations of the Burge family at Lyndoch in the southern Barossa Valley.

A flavoursome, medium-bodied blend of Shiraz (90%) and Mourvedre (10%) - both estate-grown and vintaged - which has aged gracefully and displays the generous yet stylish fruit so typical of Rick’s winemaking.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Top 8th Winery in Australia as rated by Robert Parker.

The Burge Family Winemaking tradition first started in the late 1860s with John Burge, who migrated to South Australia from Wiltshire (UK) in 1855. By the turn of the century production ceased and all equipment was sold by John’s son Meshach, and it wasn’t until 1928 that John’s grandson ‘Percival’ recommenced winemaking. Times were tough and about to get worse with falling grape prices and an impending depression.

With determination and a growing reputation for the quality of his wine, Percival’s business steadily grew and in 1950 he was joined in the winemaking responsibilities by his son Noel Burge, being one of Australia’s first qualified winemakers by graduating from the first intake of Roseworthy Oenology students in 1938.

In 1986, Noel was joined in-turn by his son Richard (Rick) who, having purchased the shareholding off other family members, immediately set about revitalising the family firm.

Success soon followed, by way of not only wine show trophies and gold medals, but also, more importantly, a steadily increasing band of satisfied customers who would purchase all of the output direct from Rick Burge’s stylish cellar-door at Lyndoch.
