Team Trentham is thrilled to announce some fantastic results at the recent International Wine Challenge 2022. This year we’ve received two Silver medals, one Bronze and a Commended award, for our four wines entered in the show.
The International Wine Challenge (IWC) is a veritable measure for wine quality on the international stage. Now in its 38th year, the show is acknowledged as the world’s most rigorous, impartial and influential wine competition. There is one annual tasting which takes place every April and the judging process assesses every wine blind, judging each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage.
Reserve Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2018 – SILVER – 92 points
Judges’ comments: ‘Flinty nose and a linear palate with delicate peach and citrus fruit, subtle oak and fresh acidity.’
Our 2018 Reserve Chardonnay has already received a number of accolades previously including a Gold medal, four Silver medals, and a 93 point rating from Australia’s most well-respected wine writer and critic James Halliday.
Reserve Noble Taminga 2015 – SILVER – 92 points
Judges’ comments: ‘Hedonistic and expressive nose with marmalade orange rind, orange blossom and barley water. Really lovely freshness running through the wine.’
We've been producing our much-loved Noble Taminga for decades and are very proud of our Reserve range showcasing the best of the Aussie wine landscape.
Reserve Tasmania Blanc de Blanc NV – BRONZE
Judges’ comments: ‘Fresh and vital with a slight dairy edge and bright citrus and pear fruit.’
