We've developed a number of new grape varieties better suited to Australian growing conditions, with good productivity and desired wine aroma and flavour characteristics.
Cienna is a wine grape variety developed by CSIRO. Grown primarily in semi arid regions of Southern Australia, Cienna produces a light, deep red wine that tastes of summer berries.
Rubienne is a wine grape variety developed by CSIRO as a suitable grape for the warmer Australian conditions. The deep coloured Rubienne produces a full bodied wine, boasting plum and cherry aromas.
Taminga is a wine grape variety developed by CSIRO as a suitable grape for the warmer Australian conditions. The white berries of the Taminga produce a high quality botrytised sweet wine, and are also ideal for blending.
Tarrango is a wine grape variety developed by CSIRO, and produces a refreshing light-bodied red wine that is best served slightly chilled.
Tyrian is a wine grape variety developed by CSIRO, producing a deep-red coloured wine with a full-bodied palate, berry fragrance and spicy fruit flavour.
