    Winemaker Notes

    Charles Melton's Rose of Virginia is described by Robert Parker as "one of Australia's finest rosés" and by the London Observer as "the best rosé in Australia." This vintage displays superb aromatics, showing lifted cherry berry characters with a touch of tropical fruit. The mild growing season has resulted in a beautifully crisp palate with superb fruit intensity. Best drunk young and vibrant, this refreshing style of wine suits a wide range of cuisine and is best served cool, but not icy cold.

    One of the Barossa Valley’s great characters, Charlie Melton has a passion for making Rhone style wines from some of Australia’s oldest vines. Shiraz, grenache, mouvedre and cabernet fruit is hand picked from ancient dry farmed vineyards, and transformed into wines of great depth, concentration and character.

    Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

    The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds. While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

    Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
