Iconic Winemaker Dinner - Charles Melton of the Barossa Valley

Wednesday 5th of July

6pm start
£79pp for 7 courses and 7 wines

This really is a last minute wine dinner!  Charlie is going on holiday to Europe with his family next week but has to be in the UK for a few days for business.  Being a long time friend and fan of his wines we have persuaded him to do a dinner to show us his new vintages!   We will also be cracking open a few special treats from our extensive 15 Vintage Charlie Melton Collection!
Due to time constraints (Charlie has to get back to London) we will be starting at 6pm for a tasting and canapes in the bar and then moving to the restaurant for dinner.   Due to Charlie's
generosity and the Park House Cellar the wine part of the night is free we're just asking you to pay for the food!   A veritable bargain for a vinious delight!

Back Ground to Charles Melton Wines

Charlie Melton was one of the first to recognise the value and tradition of the Barossa Valley's old-vine Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre (Mataro) vines. While others were pulling out Shiraz to plant more fashionable varieties, Charlie and a small band of Barossa winemakers were convincing farmers to keep their historic vineyards.
 
These wines were initially styled on those from the Rhône, but are now considered leading examples of the varieties in their own right. Charles Melton has produced premium Barossa red wines since 1984. Charlie's wines have wonderful balance and freshness, with the use of French oak giving them a supple texture and balance. The grapes are dry grown, chemical free and harvested from the winery's own vineyards in Tanunda and Lyndoch. The estate vineyards now comprise 32 hectares, the oldest having been planted in 947, with the balance planted from the late 60s onwards. The estate vineyards are supplemented by other growers with whom Charlie has worked for a number of years. The oldest grower block dates from the 1880s, with a number ranging between 70 and 100 years old..
