Tscharke Only Son Marananga Tempranillo 2014
A nod to the fact Damien Tscharke was the only son after 4 sisters. Interesting to see the lighter alcohol this year.
Dark mauve red; the nose is utterly western Barossa, all fleshy dark bold red fruits and sweet chocolate oak. Berried palate is more about milky sweetness too, stir in some berries and you’re there. A pleasant red but doesn’t quite hit go deeper than that. Drink: 2016-2022. 16.5/20, 88/100
Details: 13.5%, Screwcap, $25, Sample
Would I buy it? Not quite.
