Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2015

08-May-2017
Trinity Hill has taken to its Syrah programme with great vigour and belief. While the Bordeaux-red varieties are of prime importance, and indeed have provided some sensational wines, these may be surpassed by Syrah. The ‘Homage’ is Trinity Hill’s flagship wine now, and it is named in tribute to Gerard Jaboulet of Paul Jaboulet Aine in the Rhone Valley, maker of the famous ‘La Chapelle’ Hermitage, one of the world’s great wines. The lessons learned in making the ‘Homage’ have been applied to making the ‘Black Label’ Gimblett Gravels wine, and we are now seeing this wine grow in beauty of expression, finesse, complexity and stature. The last two vintages, the 2014 (click here to see my review) and 2013 (click here to see my review) have been outstanding, showing the combination of sophisticated vinification as well as superb growing seasons. Here, I review the new 2015 vintage release, which continues the work. www.trinityhill.com
