Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache / Garnacha, Shiraz / Syrah
Rose of Virginia, Charles Melton
Since 1984, Charlie has produced premium Barossa red wines which have wonderful balance and freshness, with the use of French oak giving them a supple texture and poise. The grapes are dry grown, chemical free and harvested from the winery’s own vineyards in Tanunda and Lyndoch. The estate vineyards now comprise 32 hectares, the oldest having been planted in 1947, with the balance planted from the late 1960s onwards.
Named after Charlie’s wife, the ‘Rose of Virginia’ is a truly unique style of rosé. Vibrant cerise in colour, this is full-bodied yet crisp, with a fragrant bouquet of Turkish Delight, seasoned with pepper and spice.
I have yet to find a better BBQ wine! This has all the flavour of a red but served cold, it’s truly refreshing. On a hot day, with steaks, lamb chops and sausages on the grill this is absolutely perfect.
