TASTING NOTE

Deep crimson colour with a “garriguey” nose of wild herbs of Provence and wild flowers. The palate is soft and well rounded with redcurrant and blackberry notes, savoury, leather scents and a delightfully long finish.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Charles Melton has made wine in Barossa since 1984. Together with a small group of local winemakers they championed less than fashionable grapes at the time, namely Grenache, Shiraz (traditionally fortified to make Australian “Port”) and Mourvedre (Mataro). The Grenache comes from old bush vines. The Shiraz and Mourvedre are a mixture of trellised and bush vines. The key to the vines though is that they are old, so make for intense wines of class and breeding.
