Tscharke [600 x 10^6] Marananga Syrah 2010, Barossa Valley, SA

$24 direct from winery. A smart title indicative of the age of the land upon which the vineyards sit. I guess the snail did win his slow and steady race afterall. Intense dark ruby colour. Enticing youthful aromas of blackcurrants, black plum cordial, finely ground black pepper and anise. Dry, full-bodied wine, smooth velvet texture with vast quantities of acids. Rich broth of clean pure blackcurrant flavours, followed by layers of glazed cherry and anise. Grippy tannins and trails off on a long finish that lasts for 30+ seconds. Drink now – 2019. 92/100.
