3.5 stars "Drinks well. Nice black fruits on the nose. Same, but jammy, on the palate. A good solid Thursday wine."

87 points "Josh Raynolds (US) Issue: July / August 2007 – Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar 87+ pts “Ruby-red. Subdued cherry and plum on the nose, which opens slowly to show bitter chocolate and candied licorice. Tangy, youthfully taut dark berry flavors possess good energy and cut but seem a tad clenched now. Will this gain in flesh with a bit of time in bottle?” Ref: www.grantburgewines.com.au/thewines/?wine=22 "

4.5 stars "Vic Harradine (CAN) Issue: July 19, 2008 – Winecurrent 4 ½ stars (out of 5) “Straightforward and drinking well now, this is a cut above most at this price point. Medium to full bodied and nicely textured, the aromas are quite expressive with mocha, tobacco and rich dark berry fruit. This theme repeats in the flavour profile with dark chocolate and boysenberry, cassis and black raspberry—thankfully, no tobacco—along with hints of tar and spice. Ripe tannin adds structure and there's good tang for balance. Pair this with grilled lamb tenderloins.” Ref: www.winecurrent.com/newsletter-mainmenu-43 "

"Food & Wine Magazine (US) Issue: October 2007 Recommended ““This red wine from fifth-generation Barossa producer Grant Burge, which shares a basic blackberry fruit character with the Two Hands, is friendly and direct—an all-fruit-all-the-time wine that gets to the heart of the appeal of Barossa Shiraz.” Ref: www.wilsondaniels.com/sellSheet.cfm?idProduct=1121&idpublication=16&idreview=3850&ssid=0 "

"Jerry Shriver (US) Issue: September 24, 2007 – USA Today Recommended “Grant Burge makes one of the most reliable and distinctive Shirazes in the otherwise boring and overcrowded $15-and-under category. It comes at you with smooth, medium-intense raspberry and cherry flavors, but then finishes with a deeper, richer, stewed fruit effect and a dose of black pepper.

4.5 stars "Restaurant Wine (US) Issue: October 2007 – Issues 119 & 120 4+ stars (out of 5) “Grant Burge wines have improved significantly in the past decade, and these are wonderful values. The Barossa Vines bottling (screw cap) is full bodied and fruity in style, with some richness, good balance, light oakiness, and a long finish, tasting of boysenberry, toast, and black licorice.” "
