Charles Melton Nine Popes Barossa Valley 2015

Member Review by MarioRobles:

A very Rhone-like wine but 'speaking' Australian! - a blend of cultures and styles, beautiful wine, lots of red fruits, well balanced... my original notes say "Get it!" 96/100 - will last for 15+ years

It was in the mid 80's that Charlie and a small band of Barossa winemakers turned their winemaking efforts to what was considered then a couple of unfashionable varieties; Shiraz and Grenache. With these varieties, Charlie built a small range of classic dry reds including a Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre blend called the Nine Popes. These wines were initially styled on those from the Rhone but are now considered leading examples of the varieties in their own right. Read less

Ordered from Vinexus.de and tested one just a week later, 5th November, 2010. Perfect "berry bomb", intense blueberry, long, already very balanced but still feels young, very Australian - in a positive way. Likely to improve further with age. Melton knows his stuff. Love it.
