A pure Touriga wine from the superlative Tscharke estate property at Gnadenfrei in Barossa Valley. The Nacional clone of Touriga vines were established 1985 to propitious weathered, quartzite rich, brown clay soils, they are now fully mature and yielding the most exemplary harvests. Damien Tscharke fashions his Touriga to a medium bodied style that drinks beautifully immediately upon release, ideally slightly, chilled alongside Mediterranean marinades and grills.
The Tscharke family immigrated to South Australia in 1861, they have been growing Barossa grapes and making good wine ever since. Their auspicious Touriga vines are a recent newcomer, purposefully planted to face the east, sheltering grapes from afternoon heat and direct sunlight. Fruit is harvested at lower sugar baumes, grapes are destemmed and crushed into open top fermenters for vinification at higher temperatures of at least 28°C. Batches are pumped over and plunged daily until fermented to dry, components are pressed and racked off gross lees to a selection of seasoned French oak hogsheads and puncheons. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Intense colour. Bouquet of sour cherries, geranium florals and a seasoning of richly piquant spice. A soft palate of sweet fruit flavours, ocean spray, cranberries and ribena, the savouryness of crushed autumn leaves and aromatic notes of turkish delight. Serve slightly chilled and match with olive bay leaf recipes, veal and light rustic fare.

About the Tscharke Winery
The Tscharke range has been a project seven years in the making and is the result of the vision of Damien Tscharke, proprietor, viticulturalist and winemaker
Damien is a sixth generation vigneron and Roseworthy honours graduate. Damien is also the proprietor and winemaker for the acclaimed wines produced under the Glaymond brand, which was established in 2001. His vision to explore and develop alternative varietals in the Barossa Valley led to the establishment of the Tscharke brand in 2004. Having worked on his family's vineyards for over 15 years he has developed an intimate knowledge of the vineyard sites and sub appellations of Marananga and Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley.
