Trinity Hill Merlot 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 29-Feb-2024
Moderately deep ruby-black, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and juicy, with aromas of plum, blackberry, spice and cocoa. Medium-bodied, aromas of plum and blackberry layer with dark chocolate and oak spices. The mouthfeel is silky and coated with soft, ripe tannins, along with succulent fruit, providing an early drinking palate. Match with beef burgers and lamb ribs over the next 3-5 years. Fermented to 14.5% alc, aged 14 months in a combination of stainless steel and small French oak barrels. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $24.99
