Charles Melton Father In Law
Sourced from the family vineyards in the Barossa Valley, the Father-in-Law Shiraz has a linear structure that is poised, rounded and spicy with a long elegant finish. Good medium to deep colour with bright hues. The wine displays a meat stock complexity with the sweetness starting to show with time in the glass. The palate is the star here. It has a lovely sweet richness, is fully flavoured and plush but certainly not big. Showing some red berry perfume and a light dusting of savoury oak that will develop with bottle age. Rich and soft in the mouth with a structure between medium and full bodied, but with a smooth mid palate and a lick of soft tannins. Will settle in the short term, but will build richness and complexity the longer it is in the bottle.
