Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Tempranillo 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Tempranillo from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Jan-2021
Deep, ruby-black with little transparency, lighter ruby-red edged. The nose is gently full with mealy nuances of smoke meat, olives and cedar, underlying blackberries, bramble fruit notes and an amalgam of spice. Full-bodied, the nuances have a savour tone, kalamata olives melded with blackberries, bramble, black liquorice haul along with warm spices and cedar. The mouthfeel is full, filled with fine-grained tannin with a good grip, leaves the palate coated in fine dusty tannin. The fruit is with concentration and intensity, supported by lively acidity to a lingering closing. This is a robust, savoury nuanced tempranillo with good concentration on a refined dusty tannin palate. Match with South American meat grill and empanadas over the next 6+ years. Fermented to 14% alc, aged in barriques for 16 months. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jan 2021 RRP $39.99
