With a huge cult following in their native Australia, Charles Melton is one of the Barossa Valley’s most sought-after names. While hugely successful in the southern hemisphere, these wines fly well under the radar of many UK buyers and are rarely seen in Europe. As such, we’re very pleased to have their excellent Nine Popes and Voices of Angels to offer our clients.

 

Charles Melton has been a key player in the Barossa Valley for decades. One of the founding winemakers at Peter Lehmann Wines, he established his own winery in 1986 and has since earned himself a glittering reputation for the quality of his wines.

 

The Chateauneuf-du-Pape-inspired Nine Popes is undoubtedly the jewel of Melton’s crown. Ranked “Excellent” by the authoritative Langton’s Classification, it is on many a collector’s wishlist. Halliday recently gave the 2013 a huge 97 point score, calling it: “a richly woven tapestry of spiced red and black fruits that stands apart from and above all but one or two Barossa Valley GSMs”. He is not alone in singling the Nine Popes out from the crowd: Wine Correspondent Matthew Jukes recently placed it among his top 100 Best Aussie Wines and called it “the star of the show” - huge praise given the price tag of GBP 25 a bottle IB.

 

In addition to the Nine Popes, this parcel also contains the spectacular 97 point 2013 Voices of Angels Shiraz, a highly individual wine which is crafted from 15% whole bunches and 3% co fermented Riesling to give a Syrah of great finesse. At under GBP 30 a bottle in bond and with the potential to age for another three decades, it is an excellent addition to the collection.

 

These are top wines from one of the Barossa’s most well-respected winemakers and the opportunity to own both of them at once, a great one.
