Legendary Penfold winemaker John Duval began his apprenticeship in 1974 under the tutelage of the late great Max Schubert. Duval's family had been supplying Penfolds with fruit and root stock for generations, many of South Australia's most prestigious vineyards were sown with cuttings from Duval's family property. Duval was awarded International Wine & Spirit Competition Winemaker of Year and twice London International Red Winemaker of Year. He now focuses on releasing painfully limited editions, assembled from precious parcels of elite Barossa vine, hand crafted by one of the world's most accomplished and peer respected winemakers...

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..

Fruit is harvested at healthy levels of complete ripeness, brimming with a fine concentration of esters and ideal acidity. Bunches are picked into small packing cases and delivered to the winery, softly pressed and cold settled at cool temperatures to separate juice form gross solids. The musts are vinified at moderate temperatures around 18°C over the course of a fortnight, followed by several months maturation.
Straw yellow, greenish hues. Intense floral and fruity aromas, almond and white pommes characters over a background of fine mineral crispness. A lengthy, well structured palate of drying fruit flavours, its astringency kept in check by apple and kernel notes, all supported by balanced acidity and culminating in a long, crystalline, savoury finish.
