Charles Melton Nine Popes GSM 2017

Region: Barossa Valley
Grapes: Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro
First Glance: Dense, Perfumed, Detailed, Spicy 

The Wine:
A little toasty flint opening. Quietly sweet, not exuberant but with a real density of aromatic. A hint of anise or licorice. A generous, but fine, sweetly structured and flavour attack into the mouth. The sweet fruit floods across your tongue but is interlaced with herbs and spices. Let it sit on your tongue for a moment while you differentiate the flavour components and then think about where you would find these flavours, a salty sea breeze with a view, or perhaps a long lunch looking into the village square with the smells of the local market.
