Description

Trinity Hill has established a formidable reputation for quality wine production, their Gimblett Gravels Syrah leading the way and offering wine lovers a glimpse of the legendary Homage at a much more affordable price tag. This 2016 Gimblett Gravels Syrah is another knockout, a firmly structured red that would probably have qualified and bettered some of the earlier bottlings of Homage. A great year in the Hawke's Bay, this wine will cellar 15 years at a canter.

Smells

Pencil shavings, plum and blackberry leap from the glass, with leather, violet and myriad pepper and spices.

Tastes

Loads of fruit weight and intensity, the structure is more prominent than most years, the spicy peppercorn notes adding complexity to the dark fruit profile. Velvety and long but still very primary, this wine screams potential and needs a few years to show its absolute best. Don't be afraid to drink a few bottles though, it's lovely in its youth - just make sure you have a case stashed away somewhere cool
