The Father in Law is a block of Clare Valley vines, originally acquired to keep Mrs Melton's dad busy after retirement. This superior parcel of Shiraz from Syd Weckert's (the father in law) site, is enhanced by a harvest of choice Barossa fruit. Solidly structured, generously proportioned yet highly elegant, Father in Law displays the sweet berry floral perfumes of Valley Clare, well supported by the dark chocolate and merry spice that's characteristic of all things Barossa.
Father in law is treated to the traditional Charles Melton retinue, whole bunches, de-stemmed but uncrushed fruit, cap management and daily pumpovers throughout. Batches are pressed off just prior to dryness into a selection of seasoned oak barriques for an extended term of twenty months on lees to infuse flavour and build richness.
TASTING NOTES
Bright, opaque scarlet colour. Sweet spicy almost Christmas plum pudding scent, rich and warm. Rich, plump mid palate with savoury flavours, characters of rhubarb and ham, sleek tannins that glide across the palate. Full but not overly big, showing the Clare Valley linear structure, openness, generosity, warmth, the perfect red for gourmet sausages, barbeques and meats.

More About Charles Melton Winery
Since the first vintage of Charles Melton in 1984, this small Barossa Valley winery has gained both national and international recognition for its premium red table wines
The wines move from a light red, The Rose of Virginia, described by Anthony Rose in London’s Observer newspaper as the best Rosé in Australia, through to Australia’s premier Rhone-style red, Nine Popes. Charlie Melton also makes small quantities of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sparkling Shiraz, and is the only Australian producer of a vin-santo styled dessert wine, Sotto di Ferro. Charles Melton»
