Nine Popes is Melton’s nod to the great wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and is as rich, powerful and beautifully balanced as the best examples from France.
This wine is deep red in colour with a hint of an amber edge. The nose is intense with ripe red fruit flavours intermingled with sweet spice and salted caramel. Beautifully balanced with a plump mouthfeel and soft tannins, it culminates in a long savoury finish.
Nine Popes is so special it’s almost a permanent feature in Matthew Jukes’ annual 100 Best Australian Wines.
