Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Apr-2021
Deep, dark purple-ruby with depth, lighter on edge. The nose is mealy and gently full, packed with nuances of ripe dark plums, blackberries, melded with medicinal herbs, black peppercorns and smoked jerky. Full-bodied, fragrant aromas of plums, blackberries, along with violets, have an elegant core, followed by black peppercorns, and medicinal herbs lend a lengthy finish. The wine possesses bright, perfectly ripened dark fruit, fragrant and rounded; carefully extracted tannin added structure and mouthfeel. Lacy acidity flows with great energy along a minerally tannin line. This is an elegant Syrah with ripe black fruit, concentration and structure. Match with grilled lamb chops or venison over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, 25% whole bunches, 2% viognier co-fermented to 13% alc. Aged 14 months in a mixture of new and older French oak 228-litre barriques plus larger 5000-litre oak ovals. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $39.99
