Trinity Hill ‘Gimblett Road’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 1997

Syrah from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Apr-2011
Very dark black-red colour, this has a fine, tight nose with intensity and concentration. Notes of mint, eucalypt and spicy oak, with savoury earth and complex animal, brettanomyces aromas. On palate quite elegantly structured, still with acidity showing, but dominated by flavours of gamey brettanomyces. Some oak resin notes along with some textural grip show. Still with sweetness in the mouth, this has not dried out, and will be drinkable for those who can tolerate the brett. Scoring positively and generously.  Apr 2011
