Trinity Hill Merlot 2019, Hawkes Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 08-Jun-2020
Dark, deep ruby-red with a youthful purple hue, lighter on edge. The nose is voluminous with aromas of ripened plums, blackberries, unfolding deep florals, dark chocolate interweaved a subtle layer of baking spices. This wine is smooth and generously presented. Medium-full bodied, displaying sweet scent of plums, blackberries; the chocolatey tannin extraction and structure broadened the palate with weight and interweaved spices to a sustained finish. This is a smooth and generous Merlot with flavours of plums, blackberries and oak spices with good tannin structure and body. Match with grilled red meat and casseroles over the next 5+ years. Fruit from vineyards of Gimblett Stones, Tin Shed and Gimblett Gravels. Merlot 85%, Cabernet Franc 10%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5% fermented to 13.5% alc. aged for 7 months in a combination of stainless steel and French oak barrels. 18+/20pts June 2020 RRP$22.99
