Description

Who makes Hawke’s Bay’s finest Syrah, Trinity Hill or Bilancia? It’s sort of a trick question, since the answer should really be “Warren Gibson”, who makes both of them! Homage is his day job with Trinity Hill and La Collina his own personal project with his wife and fellow winemaker, Lorraine Leheny. Bilancia (bee-larn-cha) has been around for nearly 20 years, the name arising out of Warren and Lorraine’s time working in Italy and its profound influence on their winemaking proclivities. As you’d expect, the name means balance, something that is on full display in this 2016 La Collina Syrah. From a truly great year for Syrah, this 2016 La Collina has a quite astonishing nose showing all sorts of warm herb and spice complexity, with pepper, leather, liquorice, anise and smoke, the palate amazingly long and savoury with lots of sweet black fruit, graphite, dark chocolate and luxurious tannins. One of the great Syrahs ever made in NZ, if you’re serious about wine, this needs to be in your cellar.
