Tarrango 2022

Brown Brothers

Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)

Developed in partnership with the CSIRO, Tarrango was well ahead of its time when Brown Brothers first pioneered the light-bodied red in 1965. A cross between the white Sultana grape and a red Portuguese variety called Touriga Nacional, Tarrango was the direct result of trial and experimentation – driven by our desire to create a unique wine varietal better suited to thrive in the hot, arid climate of Australia.

In the glass this wine is juicy, light, and inherently drinkable; ripe with delicious fruit flavour and natural acidity. Best served chilled.

Food Pairings

If you have trouble finding that perfect wine for Indian food, look no further. The fruity flavours of the Tarrango are ideal with the spices and heat in Indian curries. Because of Tarrango's versatility it is also fantastic with a wide range of BBQ meats (including seafood) and vegetables.

Notes

  • Jeni Port, 2024 Halliday Wine Companion 02/08/2023

    "Looks the part in brilliant red cherry hues. Smells the part in confection-laced red berries and spice. Delivers a soft, smooth, easy-going vibe in red cherry, spice and boiled lolly, the latter becomes toned down when served chilled."

A number of fermentation techniques including whole bunch and carbonic maceration were utilised to enhance the red berry fruit lift. The wine was kept in stainless steal tanks to retain as much aroma as possible.
