Editorial Reviews for Trinity Hill Syrah Hawkes Bay Homage

This is complex, with a slightly unusual array or aromas that range from distinct black pepper and smoked meats to peach nectar, dried plums, flowers, and a rusty mineral tone. Rich and broad in the mouth, with good balance and surprising transparency for a wine of this size. The mid-palate tightens up, with firm tannins supporting bittersweet red fruits that gain a dusty, savory overlay of flavors on the long finish. This may be a touch over-extracted when all is said and done but is awfully good anyway. 92pts


User Reviews for Trinity Hill Syrah Hawkes Bay Homage

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 Homage is a world renowned wine of exceptional quality. Robert Parker gives this wine 93 points and says, "The 2007 Homage is sourced from vines planted in 1994 and cropped at 17hl/ha and matured for 18 months in French barriques. It has a very intense nose of macerated dark cherries, plum, tar and liquorices. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied, slightly “cooler” than the 2006, good acidity, very well balanced, the new oak very well integrated into the fabric of the wine. Nice grip, very toasty with layers of pure fruit underneath and the minerality showing through more on the aftertaste. It requires 4-5 years in bottle, but the focus is wonderful."
