Have you heard of Taminga? It’s is a white grape variety developed by CSIRO at Merbein. It’s suited to grow in the warm Aussie climate and is a cross between the Spanish Planta Pedralba and Sultana, and the variety Traminer. Which makes sense as to why it produces botrytised sweet wine (aka dessert wine).
I have been saving this sample I received of the Trentham Estate Winery (thank you!) 2014 Reserve Noble Taminga from the Murray Darling to enjoy with my parents on their recent visit. We had it with dessert one evening, what a treat! $18 a bottle.
You can’t tell from the empty bottle in the photo (it was gone far too quickly to get a snap!) but it’s a lovely golden nectar colour in the glass. The nose is slightly floral with lemon citrus and apricots. While in the mouth it’s juicy with honeyed pear, apricots and a nice balanced lemon acidity. Completely moreish!
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #winesample #tcweekdaywine
