Trinity Hill ‘The Trinity’ Hawke’s Bay 2014

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Oct-2015
Predominantly Merlot with smaller proportions of Tempranillo, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and other varieties from the Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa Triangle, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins for 4 weeks post ferment and aged 14 months in French oak barriques and tank. Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on edge. This has an elegant and fragrant nose with up-front aromas of lifted dark red berry fruits along with subtle black fruits and red floral lift. The aromas are harmoniously interwoven building in volume, revealing dark herb and iron-earth nuances. Medium-full bodied, bright, juicy and aromatic flavours of dark red berry fruits feature on the palate. The wine is vibrant and lively, with sweetness and lift. Some red plum, fresh herbal and earthy flavours unfold, and powdery tannin extraction emerges to form a fine-textured core and line. The structure carries the wine to a light, dry, lingering finish. This is a bright, juicy and vibrant, aromatic fruited Merlot-based wine with fine, drying tannins and finish. Match with roasted and grilled lamb and beef dishes over the next 4+ years. 17.5-/20 Oct 2015 RRP $22.00
