Description

Corryton Burge Kith Barossa Valley Shiraz is an Australian red wine made from grapes grown in the Barossa Valley wine-growing region, a region noted for it excellent Shiraz. It is part of their “Kith” range of wines.

Corryton Burge takes it name from the family’s historical property, Corryton Park Homestead, which was built in 1845. It is located in the gentle hills of the the Eden Valley wine-growing region to the north of Adelaide. The Eden Valley is bounded by the Barossa Valley wine region to the west and the Adelaide Hills wine region to the south. The estate is run by sixth generation winemakers, and siblings, Trent and Amelia Burge. Both Trent and Amelia are heavily involved in running the estate. Trent is in charge of all departments and day to day operations and Amelia is involved with wine marketing and as a member of the board of management. They also both have their own wine projects: Barossa Boy Wines and Amelia Burge Wines.

When Grant Burge sold Grant Burge brand, they retained all the real estate. The grapes are source from the Burge family’s 300 hectares of vines in southern and central Barossa and Adelaide Hills with a network of twenty growers further afield in non-Barossa regions. The wines are made at the family’s Illaparra winery by the talented winemaking team of Matthew Pellew, Andrew Cockram and Trent Burge. There are three ranges of wines: the Kith, Kin and Her Majesty’s Theatre.

The grapes for the Corryton Burge Kith Barossa Valley Shiraz is sourced from both Burge’s own and grower vineyards across southern and central Barossa, this allows great consistency in style. The wines is matured in a combination of French and American 300L hogsheads for 22 months.
