Taminga is a variety developed by the CSIRO at Merbein in the 1970’s. It’s a cross between the Spanish Planta Pedralba and Sultana, and Traminer. It is high yielding and a late ripening variety well suited to producing a botrytis style wine which Trentham have exploited. Ageing gracefully it displays honey and apricots on the nose. Sweet (approximately160gm RS) on the palate but well balanced with a good levels of acidity. Elegant wine, medium bodied (for a dessert wine) making it extremely drinkable, it displays more honey and mandarin flavours on a satisfying, long finish. Current vintage in 2015. Well priced. 375ml bottle

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
