It’s rare to come across the grape Tarrango in Australia because it was an experimental grape developed by the CSIRO in 1965 using the grapes Touriga and Sultana. The idea was to create a light bodied red to suit our climate that can be chilled and offers refreshment. On the nose you’ll find attractive aromas of cherry and spice that follow onto the delicate, light and juicy palate.It finishes dry with an intense fruit flavour and is the ideal compliment to spicy dishes like Indian.
The 2012 Tarrango is a strawberry, magenta colour with lifted aromas of fresh berries, cherries and a hint of spice. Tarrango is a light-bodied red wine that should be served slightly chilled. It is a refreshing wine, characterised by aromas and flavours reminiscent of red berries and a delicate dry finish. This vintage is rich and juicy with a racy acidity. Tarrango is a delicious and versatile alternative that is best enjoyed young and fresh.
If you have had trouble finding that perfect wine for Indian food then look no further. The fruity flavours of the Tarrango are ideal with the spices and heat in Indian curries. The Tarrango is also fantastic with a wide range of BBQ meats and vegetables.
