Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2020, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 29-Jun-2022
Deep, full, dark purple with a ruby-black hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, packed with dark elements of earth, graphite intermixed blackberries, Damson plums, sage and black pepper. Full-bodied, dense aromas of blackberries, Damson plums supported by a rich earthiness, savoury, meaty nuance, unfolding sage and black pepper. Grunty, firm tannins reflect rich mineral soils and dark flinty elements, provide structure and a silky mouthfeel. Juicy acidity integrated with fruit lengthens and feeds freshness to a long, pure expression. This Gimblett Gravels Syrah expresses a sense of place with firm structure, pure dark fruit and soil elements supported by integrated, juicy acidity. Match with braised beef cheeks and lamb rack over the next 6+ years. Handpicked from estate-owned vineyards, fermented to 13% alc, aged 12 months in 5,000L oak ovals. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) June 2022 RRP $39.99
