Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2014

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 30-Aug-2016
Very dark, near impenetrable black-hued purple-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. This has a full and voluminous nose with layers of aromatic black-berried fruits with fragrant violet and black-red florals, unfolding subtle notes of black pepper and spices. This exudes elegant beauty and purity and blossoms with ethereal detail. Medium-full bodied, the palate features very ripe black fruits entwines with an array of florals and perfumes. The mouthfeel is vibrant and lively, enhanced by fresh, lacy acidity, and the palate is underling by grainy tannin textures. The structure carries the fruit to a firm, dry finish. This is a beautifully fragrant Syrah with an array of black fruit and floral aromatics on a fresh, lively, grainy-textured palate. 8+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Tin Shed’ and ‘Gimblett Stones’ vineyards, 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 14 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques and 5,000 L oak ovals. 18.5+/20 Sep 2016 RRP $35.00 Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Tin Shed’ and ‘Gimblett Stones’ vineyards, 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 14 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques and 5,000 L oak ovals. Full, black-hued purple-red colour, a little lighter on edge. This has a full and voluminous nose with fragrant aromas of dark red and black berried fruits intermingling with piquant red florals, black pepper, Asian spices and soy sauce. Medium-full bodied, the palate is harmoniously presented with mouthfilling flavours of dark red berry fruits, red floral elements, black pepper and spices. The fruit is rich and succulent with fine, lacy acidity enhancing the fruit sweetness and enlivening the mouthfeel. The palate is underlined by fine-grained tannins and the wine flows along a concentrated, linear core, leading to a long aromatic finish of red berries, florals and spices. This is a fine-textured, aromatic Syrah with sweet and rich fruit flavours. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian fare over the next 5-6+ years. 18.5+/20 Jan 2016 RRP $35.00
