A lush example of the Tempranillo varietial. Perfectly matched with the NZ lamb meal I had with it. Fruity and long with smooth tannins. More life in it yet I feel.
Trinity Hill is one of the few Tempranillo wine makers in Hawkes Bay and they do it very well. This is a fruit forward wine with smooth tannins and a medium long finish. And like many Hawkes Bay wines, you get a very lush mouth with the higher alcohol content of their Aussie and CA counterparts. Definitely worth a try if you can find it!
