Trinity Hill ‘The Trinity’ Hawke’s Bay 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Jan-2012
A blend of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot and 3% other varieties from the Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 14.3% alc., the wine aged 12 months in French oak and stainless-steel barrels. Very dark, deep, ruby-red with black hues to the colour, this is intense on the nose with harmoniously presented aromas of dark raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, with notes of red florals, dark herbs and iron-earth. Medium-full bodied, rich and lush flavours of dark berry fruits, red florals, earth and herbs feature on the palate forming a core with concentration and depth. Soft, fine and supple tannins and discreet acidity support the fruit. This is fresh and bright and very accessible, and the wine carries a good lengthy finish. Fruit-focussed with subtle oaking, this is an approachable red to match with pasta, poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years. 18.0/20 Jan 2012 RRP $19.00
