Charles Melton The Kirche Shiraz Cab 2016

Charles Melton The Kirche Shiraz Cab 2016 South Australia Barossa Valley

$35.95

Charles Melton The Kirche Shiraz Cab 2016 is our homage to the great Australian Shiraz/Cabernet style.

A  beautifully aromatic wine, with the blackberry/briar Cabernet perfumes giving a real interest on the nose and also adding a degree of balancing finesse to the Shiraz components’ richness and weight. Some rounded tannic grip augers well for the longevity of this wine, with a lovely gentle, but apparent cut of acidity giving the wine some real vibrancy.

HISTORY

Since the first vintage of Charles Melton Wines in 1984, this small Barossa Valley winery has gained both national and international recognition for its fine red table wines.

The wines move 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, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sparkling Shiraz, and is the only Australian producer of a vin-santo styled dessert wine, Sotto di Ferro.

Charlie was one of the first to recognize the value and tradition of the Barossa’s old vineyard Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. At a time when others were pulling out vineyards of Shiraz to plant more fashionable varieties, Charlie was convincing farmers to keep their historic vineyards. He was one of a small group of winemakers who helped retain the viticultural heritage of the Barossa.
