Trinity Hill ‘The Trinity’ Hawke’s Bay 2011

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 11-Mar-2013
Very full, near impenetrable purple-hued black-red colour, very youthful in appearance. This has an elegant and softly presented bouquet with gently interwoven aromas of fragrant dark red florals, blackcurrants and redcurrants, quite primary in expression. Tobacco-like Merlot, dried herbs and plum notes unfold in the glass. Medium-bodied, the flavours gently fill the palate with a harmonious and even mouthfeel. Red berry fruits, blackcurrants and plum flavours are underlined by soft and supple tannins, the acidity in the background. The flavours lead to a light-fruited finish with moderate length. This is a gentle and supple Merlot-based wine with subtle perfumes and detail. Serve with pasta, pizza, barbecued meats over the next 4 years. Hawke’s Bay fruit, predominantly Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Tempranillo, Malbec and Petit Verdot, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French oak barriques and tank. 16.5+/20 Mar 2013 RRP $22.00
