Charles Melton The Father In Law Barossa Shiraz 2015

Tasting Notes
Charles Melton The Father In Law Barossa Shiraz 2015 is not black, but a deep crimson robe.

Juicy, yet savoury aromatic, embellished by a little oak vanillin.

A rich but not big palate with a lovely mix of spicy tapenade and plush fruit sweetness on the mid palate.

A reasonable but not intrusive lick of tannin will stand the wine in good stead for some years yet.

Sourced from the family vineyards in the Barossa Valley and the Clare Valley, the Father-In-Law Shiraz has a linear structure that is poised, rounded and spicy, with a long elegant finish.

A little rain in January and sunshine in February got the 2015 vintage off to a flying start; indeed one of the earliest starts ever! We harvested over 60% of our total crop in the first seven days, and the remainder over the following 43 days. The speedy start turned into a calm and benign March and April of perfect, mild conditions. Eden Valley especially benefited from the mildness. Aged sur lie at our Krondorf Road Winery in a mix of French and American oak barriques for 20 months.

Predominately dry farmed Shiraz are both fully destemmed and also whole bunch fermented (approximately 5-10% most years). Kept quite cool during the fermentation phase (18 – 20oC). After pressing off skins (both the free run and pressings are used) the wine is run into mostly older barriques and left to age on lees for 20 months before bottling. Winery Notes
