Corryton Burge ‘Percival Norman’ Barossa Shiraz 2019
This is my pick from the entire Corryton Burge range. It is part of the Kin premium range and hence $45, but more than worth the extra pennies. The wine is named after Amelia and Trent’s great grandfather and has enjoyed French oak maturation for 17 months.
Even though it is a year younger than the standard shiraz, it is more approachable, more polished. It has the desired generosity, boldness and richness, but also finesse plus excellent length here. Dense fruit, but well balanced. Dry herbs, cloves, black olives, mocha and chocolate with good acidity then carrying the fruit through to a long finish, which does not lose its intensity. Delicious.
