Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2016

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 04-Nov-2017
Very dark, deep purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, very youthful in appearance. The nose is softly full and voluminous with well-packed aromas of ripe dark raspberry fruit with blackberries, black and white pepper, dark-red and violet floral fragrances and nuances of dark herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate has elegantly concentrated flavours of ripe blackberry and dark raspberries with a layering of pepper, lifted florals, dark herbs and spices. The fruit is supported by fine tannin extraction, lending powdery textures and grip The acidity is integrated and the mouthfeel is sweet and mouthfilling. The wine carries to a soft, lingering finish of dark-red fruits, pepper and spice. This is an elegantly concentrated Syrah with mouthfilling flavours of black and red fruits, pepper, florals and herbs on a fine-textured palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison, and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4-5 years. 98% Syrah, the fruit hand-picked from estate Gimblett Gravels vineyards fermented with 25% whole bunches and 2% Viognier co-fermented, to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months new and seasoned French oak barriques and 5,000 L oak ovals. 18.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP $35.00
