Charles Melton Wines has produced premium Barossa red wines since 1984. At that time, Charlie and a small band of Barossan winemakers turned their winemaking efforts to what were then considered a couple of unfashionable varieties: Shiraz and Grenache. These wines were initially styled on those from the Rhône but are now considered leading examples of the varieties in their own right.
Named after Charlie's wife, Virginia, this vibrant cerise rose is full-bodied yet crisp, with a fragrant bouquet of Turkish Delight, seasoned with pepper and spice. Perfect served as a lightly chilled red, to accompany summer dishes. 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 a couple of years at least.
