HOMAGE SYRAH 2016 (NOT RELEASED)

04 Jan 2018

Trinity Hill ‘Homage’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2016 «««««

Dark, deep ruby-red colour with black hues, a little lighter edged. The nose is refined and elegant with beautiful proportion showing blackberry fruit along with liquorice and spices, unfolding voluminous perfumes of violet florals. This is so seamless and yet enveloping. Medium-full bodied, the fruit richness on palate is the feature, with sweet and succulent black fruits, liquorice and spices, along with fragrant violet and fine herb nuances. The level of detailing is impressive. The fruit has a very concentrated core, with excellent structure from flowery tannin extraction to match the fruitiness. The mouthfeel is vibrant and energetic with a harmonious vitality. Ripe plum and liquorice elents emerge on the long and sustained finish. This will live 15+ years by way of its finesse, richness and balance. 19.5/20 April 2018 RRP $TBA

Trinity Hill Syrah 2015 Gimblett Gravels, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand

Fresh, vivid and peppery on the nose: more white pepper than black. The palate is midweight and supple, fresh and peppery, with fresh red and black cherry and blueberry notes. Nicely proportioned, fresh and beautifully balanced with vivid black fruits. Polished and appealing but with a subtly wild edge, too. This has a sense of elegance to it. Finishes dry and grippy but not austere. 93/100

2016 Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Syrah

Price: $40
Rating: Outstanding

Pungent perfume leaps from the glass, blueberry, violets, summer flowers. Rich and with real depth, the dark fruits joined by savoury nuances, porcini mushroom and forest floor, with powerful tannins giving a lip-smacking chewiness, yet the whole retaining a delightful freshness and lightness. Wonderful complexity that draws you back,

2016 Trinity Hill Hawke’s Bay Syrah

Price: $23
Rating: Good to excellent

Darker, earthy nose with a touch of smoke and wildness. Red fruited palate, top notes of raspberry and pepper, supple and rounded, developing some smoky nuances. This grows nicely in the glass, developing a zesty tang and shows lovely vitality and freshness. Medium weight and nicely balanced wine that is in the slot to enjoy now.

Black pepper and paprika notes leap out of the glass featuring rich, ripe, black licorice-scented huckleberry and blackberry flavours. Generous and increasingly detailed on the finish, with hints of Earl Grey teal and toasted cumin coming in on a velvety frame. Drink now through 2028. 1000 Cases Made.

Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 5 Stars , Michael Cooper

06 Jan 2018

The winery's flagship 'black label' Chardonnay from Hawke's Bay is typically intense and finely structured. Grown in the Gimblett Gravels and fermented and matured for a year in French oak puncheons (30-35 per cent new), the 2016 vintage (5*) is a model of refinement. Retasted in May 2018, it is light lemon/green, with a slightly smoky bouquet. Still very fresh and elegant, with strong, vibrant grapefruit and stone-fruit flavours, mealy, biscuity notes adding complexity, and obvious potential, it shows excellent vigour, drive and length; best drinking 2019+.

Touriga Nacional - Otago Daily Times

NV Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Touriga

Price: $70
Rating: Excellent

Initial subtlety gives way to powerfully expressed dark fruits with lifted spirit notes. A brooding intensity to the dark fruits and bittersweet dark chocolate on the rich and textural frame, which is an exercise in restrained power. Sweetly fruited yet finishing dry, building in richness all the while, with a fruit pithy chewiness on the close.

More to come here methinks. Mark Henderson.

The Gimblett 2015 - Michael Cooper - The Listener NZ

05 Jan 2018

This highly refined red was blended principally from cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. Dark and full-bodied 913.5%acl/vol), it has blackcurrant-like flavours, gently seasoned with nutty oak, and lovely richness, complexity and harmony.
