Buy Charles Melton Rose: Rose Of Virginia Online
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.
This light‐to‐medium bodied Rose is fresh, zesty and full of character. A wine with a bright and sexy magenta hue with real vivacity. A beautiful lifted Grenache perfume, with the full spectrum of berry fruits, but also a spicy, and ever so slight grassy herbal note to keep it in the grown up range of flavours. The Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Meunier components provide focus and depth of structure whilst still maintaining crispness and a ‘light on her feet’ mouthfeel.
A number of key techniques were employed by Charles Melton to make an elegant, fresh and aromatic Rose that is the perfect accompainment when entertaining. To retain natural acidity and give zest and crispness on the palate, the grape varieties were picked early in the season. Co‐fermentation of several grape varieties, including Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Meunier and variation in skin contact produced a Rose with vibrancy and elegance.
