User Reviews for Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Syrah

Winemaker's Notes:

Situated on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Trinity Hill is a partnership between John Hancock, Robert and Robyn Wilson (owners of London’s Bleeding Heart and The Don restaurants) and Aucklanders Trevor and Hanne Janes. Three founding partners, hence the name “Trinity Hill”. Highly regarded for his all round abilities in both the cellar and vineyard, John Hancock has extensive experience in Australia, France and New Zealand. The colour of this Syrah is a deep, vibrant crimson. Blackberry, black pepper, savoury and spice elements are prominent. Multi-layered complexity is the aim. Powerful but ripe and round tannins give the wine great structure. Oak aging plays a minor part and the wine lives on its fruit. Combined with good acidity, mineral, earthy and tarry characters result in a wine that is distinctly Northern Rhone-like rather than resembling any thing Australian. Pair with lamb shank, roast shoulder of pork, pan fried duck breast and with any full flavoured cheese. Jancis Robinson gives this delicious wine 17.5 points and says, "Diam. Some Homage fruit went into this. Very silky and dense and polished. Lovely toasty ripeness. Not as dense as some."
