Charles Melton Rose of Virginia 2021
This unique Barossa Valley rosé 'Rose of Virginia' is named after Charlie Melton's wife, Virginia and is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The emphasis at Charles Melton Wines is on the quality of fruit and as such all grapes are dry grown and harvested from the winery's own 80 acres of prime Barossa vineyard land, as well as from a select group of grape growers. Made from only the 'free-run' juice, this rosé has a fragrant Turkish Delight bouquet, with a little pepper and spice to add complexity. The usual unique vibrant cerise tint adds colour to the table. Balanced acidity, tannin and weight give the usual 'Rose of Virginia' combination of richness yet crispness. It will retain its fruit sweetness and perfume over the next few years without fail.
