Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Tempranillo 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Tempranillo from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 29-Feb-2024
Deep ruby-red, slightly lighter on the rim. This has a mealy bouquet filled with aromas of blackberry, plum, dark chocolate, and an amalgam of spice. Full-bodied, aromas of blackberry intermixed raspberry and plum, dark chocolate, nutmeg, liquorice and dark minerals. A smooth textured palate coated in dark minerals and fine-grained tannins, lively acidity enlivens and drives a long finish. This Tempranillo is succulent and fresh, featuring spice and a mineral-textured palate. Match with charred lamb and wild boar over the next 5+ years. Grapes were destemmed to open top fermenters for extraction and fermentation, then aged in 225-litre French barrels for 18 months, 30% new oak. 14% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $39.99
