Charles Melton Rose of Virginia Rose 2018
Made predominantly from Grenache, including a premium 70 year old ‘dry grown’ vineyard, with a splash of Shiraz and Cabernet, the 2018 Rose of Virginia is true to its own unique style. Richness up front, fantastic length and a dryer finish. No wonder it scored 96 points by James Halliday!
If we could dial up the perfect hue for Rose of Virginia every year, 2018 would be the model. Deep enough to be distinctly Virginia but with a lightness of touch to keep it on the rosé side of the spectrum. Highly aromatic with a lovely musk infused primary bouquet but hints of crushed mint and clove. Strawberries and cream, lychees with a crisp citrus tang of acidity and the traditional rounding out of some apparent but silky tannins.
