Trinity Hill ‘The Trinity’ Hawke’s Bay’ 2009

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Oct-2011
Full, deep, dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, this has a soft, slightly subdued, but densely packed nose of ripe, dark berry fruits and plums with some floral perfumes and oak spice. A medium-bodied, refined and well-proportioned wine, this has attractively aromatic dark red berry fruit, particularly reminiscent of wild raspberries, along with flavours of black plums, pepper and oak. The palate has vitality, being underlined by fresh acidity, with the tannin grip unobtrusive and fine in texture. A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc from the Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 18 months in French and American oak barrels as well as stainless-steel tanks. A vibrant and stylish wine to match with charcuterie and Mediterranean fare over the next 4-5+ years. 17.5+/20 Oct 2011 RRP $22.00
