Editorial Reviews for Charles Melton Shiraz Barossa Valley
Lovely nose, sweet and gently spicy with cinnamon, spice and leather. It has subtle mint, black raspberry, prune fruit and some face powder notes. A bit past peak, but with a fine mineral base and red fruit with some blueberry. Soft and opulent, this has real power on the short but voluminous finish. The nose seems to show some classic vanilla oak. Finishes with a bit of earthy bitterness. Chunky and a bit fudgy. 87pts
Meaty, with blackberry and a firm texture
Australia is famous for the Grape wine. Due to the warm and dry climatic conditions the grapes are cultivated on large extent. The Mid North has some of the richest agricultural and pastoral land in the state, with a valuable maritime and mining history , idyllic wine producing district and natural bushland adventures. http://www.travelaustralia360.com/the-variety-of-flinders-range.html
The nose was big and rich, almost palatable, like a doughnut shop with vanilla, raspberry and candies. On the palate, it was mouth-filling and sticky with black fruits, sweet spices and a big sticky sweet finish.
notes of spice on the nose, soft mouthfeel and a bit acidic. hints of cocoa and leather.
Favorite of the night. Interesting combo of Concord grape, light bark and cosmetic powder on the nose which contrasted sort of brilliantly with the gamey, savory, dill-tinged palate.

Charles Melton Wines has produced premium Barossa red wines since 1984. Charlie and a small band of Barossa winemakers turned their winemaking efforts to what were then considered a couple of unfashionable varieties: Shiraz and Grenache. These wines were initially styled on those from the Rhône but are now considered leading examples of the varieties in their own right. The wines have always attracted national and international recognition, and an enduring commitment to dry farmed vineyards and careful crafting of the wine will ensure that this continues.This 100% Shiraz wine has a very deep colour. It has a smoky/toasty nose - some high quality oak lifting the bouquet. A hint of sweetness poking through (plums, strawberries). Good firm tannins but with sufficient middle palate weight to match. The spiciness shows through onto the palate with a food friendly savouriness being knit together with the traditional Barossa richness and sweet fruit finish.
