Trinity Hill Homage The Gimblett Red Blend

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
The debut 2002 vintage is a single-vineyard (Gimblett Estate) Hawke's Bay wine, based on vines crop-thinned to around 2.5 tonnes per hectare. Harvested at 25 brix, it is a blend of Merlot (50 per cent), Cabernet Sauvignon (35 per cent) and Syrah (15 per cent), matured for 26 months in new French oak barriques. Showing great finesse, it is not a blockbuster; but dark and fragrant, with concentrated flavours of plums, spice and dark chocolate, excellent complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. The 2004 vintage is a distinguished and intriguing wine, dark, with lovely weight, concentration and texture. Powerful, yet very harmonious, it has great depth of blackcurrant, plum, spice and liquorice flavours, savoury and complex, yet the tannins are ripe and supple, making the wine already delicious.
