Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Tempranillo "Wine " " Trinity Hill Hawke's Bay. Nz New Zealand 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Tempranillo 90%, Malbec 7%, Syrah 3% The colour: Ruby red with crimson . The bouquet: Wild raspberry and plum fruit with spice with a little vanillin from oak barrels. The palate: Fully ripened fruit from our temperate conditions does not produce jammy or porty characters as can happen in a hotter climate. Malbec adds depth, weight and complexity to the wine, Syrah the pepper, spice and spine, increasing the complexity. This is an elegant wine, with firm but not heavy tannin structure. The texture is silky, but with substance, almost like a combination of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. There is great persistence of the wild fruit flavours on the finish.
