Charles Melton Wines has produced premium Barossa red wines, always at his winery on Krondorf Road, since 1984. It was in the mid 80's that Charlie and a small band of Barossa winemakers turned their winemaking efforts to what was considered then a couple of unfashionable varieties; Shiraz and Grenache.
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.

A number of key techniques were employed by Charles Melton to make an elegant, fresh and aromatic Rose that is the perfect accompaniment 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.
