Tscharke Shiraz Shiraz Shiraz (750ml)
Tscharke Wines are an estate grown, certified organic & biodynamic winery located on the gentle rolling slopes of the Barossa Valley Western Ridge. The Tscharke signature style is wine that is truly expressive of the grape varietal character.
Dense, inky red colour with a purple rim. The nose is layered, complex and seductive with great intensity and balance between ripe red to dark fruit and spicy undertones. The wine is upfront in its every aspect but elegantly put together so that the palate remains fresh and incredibly drinkable. The tannins are persistent and savoury, the finish long and rounded. It’s hard not to drink it, but this Shiraz will reward those patient enough to cellar it for the next 5 years.
This is a blend of the family’s three Estate vineyards, aptly named Shiraz Shiraz Shiraz. The three sites are located on the Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley in the sub-regions of Marananga and Seppeltsfield. The gentle, rugged terrain gives rise to unique growing
aspects together with the oldest soils of the Barossa Valley. This is a blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The fruit was picked at night; then 95% of it was destemmed into concrete and open top fermenters, the remaining 5% whole bunch fermented for added complexity and texture. After a warm 10- day ferment, the wines were pressed, racked off gross lees and
allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation in tank. Following MLF the wines were racked and aged for a further 12-15 months in French hogsheads (15% new) before the final blend was assembled and bottled.
