Tscharke Only Son Marananga Tempranillo, Barossa Valley 2011 $24

The colour is profound red-purple and there’s a meaty, plum-pippy, slightly animal aroma while the taste is deep and soft, with flesh and roundness. A fresh, youthful style of tempranillo which has real generosity of soft, ripe fruit. Now to 2023. 14 per cent alcohol. 89/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: slow-braised meats
