Grant Burge The Holy Trinity GSM
The name of this outstanding wine, 'The Holy Trinity' symbolises the Burge family's migration to the Barossa in the 1850's. The family, the vines and their faith created a tradition of winemaking that has continued for five generations. This wine also pays homage to the Barossa, encapsulating the three traditional red varieties of the Barossa - Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. Under guidance of head winemaker Craig Stansborough, the three varieties come together to make a complex and flavour filled red.

Their attention turned to a hill near Aix-en-Provence, some 30km from the Mediterranean. Today, Domaine de Triennes is led by Winemaker Remy Laugier, who crafts rosés like this, featuring syrah, cinsault, merlot and grenache.
