Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants. Charlie emabarked on a crusade to conserve and restore the ancient vines, establishing his cellars at Tanunda along Krondorf Road. He has since retained the most precious parcels, once destined for the logger's axe, they are now the genesis of fruit for the distinguished Barossa brand known as Charles..

The First Colonists to arrive in South Australia were brought to Kangaroo Island aboard HMS Buffalo in 1836. Sharing the journey was a veteran of the Royal Navy who had served aboard Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory. Frank Potts was an accomplished sailor and carpenter, he built many of the young colony's structures and trading vessels. Six generations later, the Potts family's precious plantings of Malbec have been a key component in many of the nation's most memorable and invaluable vintages for decades. A varietal that performs magnificently on the silty flood plains of Langhorne Creek, Bleasdale's pure Malbec bottlings are a profound statement about the excellence and eloquence which can be achieved after generations of husbanding one of the world's most instrumental yet abstruse wine..

The estate of Argiano is set within a beautiful rural environment, where rows of vines alternate with olive grooves and meadows, surrounded by luxurious Mediterranean maquis. Mount Amiata in the southeast, acts as a natural protection against inclement weather, cloudbursts and hailstorms. The respectable altitudes of 300 metres are refreshed by warm winds from the Maremma, creating a mild microclimate with many clear days throughout the growing season. Grapes are all picked by hand into small baskets. Varietals are separately handled, macerated for a fortnight or more, fermented and treated to malolactic before transfer to a selection of completely new French oak barriques for up to seventeen months maturation.
Deep purple black colour. Bouquet of ripe fruits, black currants and blackberry, infused by toasty oak. Soft on the palate with great concentration of lush fruit balanced by fine, smooth tannins. Impressive structure and complexity tempered by exemplary tannic extracts.
