Burge Family Winemakers’ old vine estate-bottled offerings, made by the modest, but enormously talented Rick Burge, are classic Barossa wines with extraordinary elegance as well as complex aromatics that combine European subtlety with Australian power.

The blend is composed of 50% Shiraz, 34% Grenache and 16% Mourvèdre. The grapes have been grown on limestone rich soils and matured in French oak. Very deep crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Perfumed nose of raspberry, violets, spice and cedar. Raspberry, liquorice, black pepper and spice flavours are on the palate and supported by dry chalky tannins, which are persistent

Reviews...
The proprietary blend of 50% Shiraz, 34% Grenache, and 16% Mourvèdre, the 2003 Olive Hill is a deep ruby/purple-tinged offering with a sweet perfume of raspberries, cherries, plums, Allspice, new saddle leather, and toasty oak. Super-ripe, concentrated, and strikingly elegant with marvellous equilibrium.
 
Readers should not confuse Burge Family Winemakers (one of Australia’s finest wineries) with the much larger firm of Grant Burge. Burge Family Winemakers’ old vine estate-bottled offerings, made by the modest, but enormously talented Rick Burge, are classic Barossa wines with extraordinary elegance as well as complex aromatics that combine European subtlety with Australian power.

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
