Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 02-May-2023
Full, deep purple with a ruby hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is voluminous and enticing with aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, violet, herbs, and liquorice roots. Medium-full bodied, aromas of blackberry and boysenberry entwined with liquorice, violet, unfolding herbs and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is powdery with dark-mineral, fine-grained tannins, unveiling a hint of smoke, meaty and savoury nuance. Sweet fruit supported by a fine acid line provides balance, freshness, and a lengthy, rich finish. This Syrah shows concentrated fruit with lively acidity and an enticing dark-mineral, silky palate. Match with venison and roasted lamb over the next 10 years. Grapes were harvested from individual blocks and clones in four distinct vineyards, destemmed, fermented separately, with a range of maceration periods, aged in 5,400-litre French oak ovals for 12-25 months. 13.5% alc. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) May 2023 RRP $39.99
