A wine that Charlie Melton originally named after a girlfriend. It attracted immediate attention in the early 1980s and helped raise the status of Rosé in the Australian market. By the early '90s, the 'Rose of Virginia' had absolutely triumphed and quickly sold out every year. Charlie had a triumph of another kind when he married Virginia.

A very flavoursome Rosé - serve only slightly chilled.
The 2010 shows an excellent translucent, bright crimson damask colour, with damask pink hue. The nose offers lifted aromas of raspberry jube followed by some plum juice, pomegranate and confectionary. Medium dry, the palate is filled with generous flavours of ripe raspberry, plum and confectionary, with some spice on the back palate. Excellent length with a clean crisp finish. Long aftertaste of raspberry, plum juice and spice.
Drink over the next twelve months (2010-2011)

Vivid crimson; fragrant spiced plum aromas lead into a palate stacked with fruit flavour without sacrificing finesse and focus; a simply delicious blend of Grenache/Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz/Petit Meunier/Mataro.
