Dry farmed, handcrafted fine Barossa red wines from one of Australia’s most awarded winemakers.
Since the first vintage of Charles Melton Wines in 1984, this small Barossa Valley winery has gained both national and international recognition for its premium red table wines. The wines span the range from a light red, ‘The Rose of Virginia’, through to Australia’s premier Rhone-style red, ‘Nine Popes’. Charlie Melton also makes small quantities of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and is the only Australian producer of a vin-santo styled dessert wine, Sotto di Ferro.
Great emphasis is placed on the quality of fruit, with all grapes 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. Yields are extremely low (often only one tonne to the acre) and the vineyards are truly old with many exceeding 80 years and some well over a century in age.
The Charles Melton team invites you to join them at the winery for a private tasting of the Charles Melton Wines portfolio, a short winery tour and then lunch or cheese plate with a glass of wine while enjoying the serenity of the verandah of their Cellar Door.
