Charles Melton Wines has produced premium Barossa red wines, always at our winery on Krondorf Road, since 1984. 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. – Description from markomkc

  • Charles Melton Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Nine Popes 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A big wine, deep purple in color, with a great tannic structure and lifted freshness. It shows some herbaceous characteristics (mint, dried herbs) as well as lots of juicy red and black fruit as well as a little vanilla and coconut from the oak. The tannins are chewy and the finish a little earthy with cocoa notes. I believe that with age, the ... Read More

  • Charles Melton Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Nine Popes 1997

    Snoothrank:

    Very ripe, tarry, herbal. Theres licorice, a nice underlying Big Red cinnamon spice, white flowers and tangerine peel. Big, a bit hard, still quite tannic with barely a covering of fruit. Viscous and rich, though the fruit has faded leaving behind leather, roasted fruit and toasted spice tones. Some fruit on the finish but its accompanied by lot... Read More

  • Charles Melton Shiraz Barossa Valley 1995

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

  • Charles Melton Shiraz Barossa Valley 1995

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

  • Charles Melton Shiraz Barossa Valley 1995

    Snoothrank:

    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 ... Read More

  • Charles Melton Shiraz Barossa Valley 2000

    Snoothrank:

    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.travelaustralia3...

  • Charles Melton Barossa Valley Nine Popes 2005

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More
