24/04/2016 – Brown Brothers Tarrango 2014

(2016) Tarrango is a cross of Portugal's noble Touriga Nacional and the humble Sultana grape, bottled here by Brown Brothers as a deeply coloured rosé (or a very light red) that has aromas of spices and coffee, cherry and plummy fruit, and something a little bit briary and Pinot-like. In the mouth it is not heavy with only 12.5% alcohol, but it has a creamy texture and whilst there is dry red fruit, it is that coffee and spice and an earthiness that gives this a bit of seriousness and savouriness.
