About this wine

To produce the Shiraz “Voices of Angels” Adelaide Hills Charles Melton the varieties were co-fermented with between 10 and 15% whole bunch used to give fresh, fruit-forward aromas. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in a mixture of new and old oak barrels, before being transferred to 100% new French oak for the final 12 months. The wine was matured on the lees in oak for 24 to 27 months, with regular battonage. The grapes for this wine are grown in a small single plot near the township of Mt. Pleasant in the Adelaide Hills, covering an area of just over one hectare. The average age of vines here are 35 years old. Charles Melton was one of the first to recognise the value and tradition of the Barossa Valley’s old-vine Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre (Mataro). While others were grubbing up Shiraz to plant more fashionable varieties, Charles and a small band of Barossa winemakers were convincing farmers to keep their historic vineyards. These wines were initially styled on those from the Rhône, but are now considered leading examples in their own right. Since 1984, Charles Melton has produced premium Barossa red wines which have wonderful balance and freshness, with the use of French oak giving them a supple texture and poise. The grapes are dry-grown, chemical free and harvested from the winery’s own vineyards in Tanunda and Lyndoch. The estate vineyards now comprise 32 hectares, the oldest planted in 1947 and the balance planted from the late 1960s onwards. The estate vineyards are supplemented by other growers with whom Charles has worked for a number of years. The oldest grower block dates from the 1880s, with numerous vines ranging between 70 and 100 years old.
