Teran is a red grape and wine variety, in Croatia mostly found in western Istria. It is a traditional sort of wine that has been cultivated for many years, and still remains the most common red wine in this part of the country.
This sort of Teran grapes are ruby red, almost purple and have a strong full taste. The grapes are cultivated in large clusters with compacted berries that have very resistant skin. The wine is because of that very rich, strong and highly aromatic.
The quality of the wine depends on the location and the conditions in the vineyard. The grapes need a lot of sun, not a lot of water and they are picked usually when fully ripe.
All of those conditions combined together and you get a royal red, almost purple liquid with a fruity aroma with hints of berries and pepper, high acidity and elevated tannins and reasonable alcohol content from 12 – 13%.
