EARLY REVIEWS - HOMAGE 2018 SCREWCAP
HOMAGE 2018 PRE-RELEASE REVIEWS
‘The release of Homage is a big deal in New Zealand each year, this time round even more so. It’s the first time Homage has been sealed with a screwcap and I personally feel the wine tastes significantly fresher for it, even at this early stage in its life.’
Is this the best Homage yet from Trinity Hill?
I think so, hands down. Love its ripe style and clean fresh vivacious personality which says: drink me now but if you can hold out, cellar me for a decade or more.”
18/20 POINTS Richard Hemming/Jancis Robinson
‘Tasted blind. Lovely combination of meat, violet and stemmy complexity on the nose. Gets the fruit power of Syrah just right too: brambles and plums. Charred meat on the finish. Fine, chalky tannin. A great example, where canny winemaking has added extra complexity without compromising the integrity of the fruit. A classic. (RH) Drink 2021 – 2033 18/20’

97/100 Cameron Douglas Wine Reviews June 2020
‘As the wine opens up in glass it organically becomes more complex, but remains youthful and engaging. On the palate - complex and as equally primary as the nose suggests, dark fruits, raspberry and black currant, sweet meats and field mushroom, bracken and dark spices. An abundance of tannin and acidity - firm, chalky, ripe and resolved. Long finish, complex and young. No need to open till 2022 at the earliest, decant for service, will last in your cellar till 2030 - at least.
So pleased to finally see this wine under screw top closure.’ June 2020
