Tscharke "Marananga" Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Aging in 50% new French oak has imparted lovely delicate flavours on this wine. The oak appears to want to sneak through without wanting to be the hero.

Leafy and capsicum notes headline the aromas found here with some fine oak happily tying it all together.

Flavours on the palate are soft, and the wine opens up beautifully delivering a hint of mint, big earthy and juicy berry characteristics. A drying finish and very enjoyable drop. Another single vineyard delight from Tscharke.
