Damien Tscharke established the Tscharke brand in 2004. A sixth generation viticulturist, he grew up in the Barossa Valley among the vineyards in Seppeltsfield and Marananga. The family’s first winemaker, his father and grandfather grew grapes as part of a mixed farming enterprise, selling their grapes to local winemakers. Damien believes the terroir of Barossa Valley offers the ideal location for new varieties to be introduced. Following extensive research Tempranillo, Graciano, Montepulciano, Zinfandel and Savagnin were planted between 1999 and 2002. His winemaking methods are traditional, with minimal handling, open-top fermentation, basket pressing, and aging in French oak with no fining or filtration. The Marananga vineyards are planted on gentle slopes of gravelly sand over red brown soil, the Seppeltsfield vineyards to red brown soil. The philosophy behind the Tscharke range is to produce wines which are stylistically distinctive, offering ripe but balanced fruit with excellent varietal definition.

Wine maker notes
This is one of the most classic style Tempranillo wines I have made. Perfumed and aromatic showing white pepper, crushed autumn leaves and lavender undertones. The palate displays red cherries, young plum and almonds with a classic mineral backbone.
