2016 Charles Melton Nine Popes GSM Barossa Valley – Venerable Shiraz vines and ancient dry grown “bush” Grenache are amongst the Barossa Valley’s richest resources. These varieties along with Mataro which is added to give a spicy complexity make up the Nine Popes cepage. The wine showing beautiful Grenache perfumes and excellent Shiraz richness and spice.
A little toasty flint upon opening. Quietly sweet, not exuberant but with a real density of aromatic. A hint of anise or licorice. A generous, but fine, sweetly structured and flavoured attack into the mouth. The sweet fruit floods across your tongue but is interlaced with herbs & spices.
Further cellaring will help bring all these elements into harmony.
