Alessandra adores Corryton Park. After being introduced to this beautiful 1850s homestead by her love, she decided to be married there. Her husband's wedding gift to her was a signature wine of her own. 

The grapes for Alessandra were grown in Grant Burge's Corryton Park vineyard high in the cool-climate Eden Valley, and blended seamlessly with small lots from the Barossa Valley floor to capture rich, velvety texture and full fruit flavours. 

Tasting Notes

A stunning rendition, this is stylish and gracefully complex, showing cassis, subtle tobacco, cured meat, warm spice and cedary oak aromas on the nose. The palate displays outstanding weight and concentration, wonderfully framed by refined texture and fine grainy tannins. Firm and solidly built, while offering supple mouthfeel, finishing superbly long and seductive. At its best: now to 2033.

The fruit here is a mix from their Moppa Springs Estate at Greenock Creek in the Barossa and the Burge Family’s Corryton Park Estate in the Eden Valley. Dark maroon in colour, the nose gives us aromas of dark fruits, spices, cigar boxes and bergamot. There are notes of coffee grinds and a little earth. This is a very much upfront style with fine, slightly furry tannins. A mid length wine, enjoy this over the next five to six years.

NOSE: Super fine and elegant nose of cedar, cigar box, tobacco and intense fruit perfume of blackcurrant and mulberry.
PALATE: Black fruits and fine chalky Cabernet complexities, which linger effortlessly on an ever-ending delicate finish.
SERVE: Decant at least 30 minutes before serving.
PAIR: Perfectly cooked steak and good conversation.


VINEYARD: 50/50 blend of two premium Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, namely the famous old vine Corryton Park in high Eden Valley and Moppa Springs Estate, just outside of the Greenock township.
WINEMAKING: Matured for two years in new French oak and then a further three years in bottle prior to release, in order for the wine to properly mature to a suitable drinking age.
CELLARING: Ready to drink now, but will reward further patience for up to 20 years.
