Charles Melton Nine Popes 2012


| /

Region: Barossa Valley
Grapes: Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro
First Glance: Icon Wine, Red Fruits, Balance, Length 

The Wine:
GSM matured for 26 months on lees in French barriques (25% new). Always a trailblazer, and remains so today with the vibrancy of its multifaceted, predominantly red-fruited palate; it is willowy, yet firm, and has prodigious length, tannin and oak precisely placed and balanced.
