The worthy vineyards along Stonewell Road at Marananga, have been source of the most memorable vintages in Barossa Cabernet. Tscharke established a smaller block of vine here in 2001, the quality of fruit however belies its teenage years. The auspicious plantings were sown east to west, aimed at protecting fruit from the parching late afternoon summer sun. The accumulated skills of six generations in Barossa viticulture, have sired a precious site which yields a multi dimensional Cabernet wine of amazing depth, structure and length.
The later ripening Stonewell Road vineyard is planted to deep red/brown clay soils with underlying calcareous chalks, well suited to realizing harvests of well balanced fruit which are unaffected by excessive exposure to summer heat. Grapes are all picked by hand and completely destemmed, crushed into an open top fermenter and inoculated for vinification at temperatures between 22ºC and 25ºC. The active ferments are punched down and plunged over by heading down boards for optimal extraction of flavour, colour and tannin. Following two months of skin contact, batches are gently pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for an extravagant nineteen months élevage. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deeply coloured crimson red. Intensely fragrant nose of stunning varietal complexity, spearmint and cassis, brambleberries and lavender, roasted coffee bean. Luscious full bodied palate of juicy black licorice and cassis, blue berries and dark Barossa chocolateyness over the length of powerful yet disciplined, chalky tannins. An august Barossa Cabernet which drinks magnificently on release.

About Tscharke Wines
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.
