Trinity Hill Homage Syrah 2018 750ml

Appellations: Gimblett Gravels & Roys Hill, Hawke’s Bay Vineyards: 70% Gimblett Estate/19% Tin Shed /11% Gimblett Stones. Picked: 22nd March to 18th April. Alc/Vol: 13.0%. 

2018 was a very warm early season in Hawke’s Bay with a very warm, humid, late summer and autumn. Special canopy management of the vines, along with impeccable viticulture during the growing season, ensured fruit quality of the highest order. Syrah grapes were hand-harvested from several individual sites and blocks, de-stemmed and fermented separately. Each parcel was hand-plunged or pumped over once daily during fermentation to aid optimum colour and tannin extraction. One parcel was fermented with 100% whole bunches and Viognier skins to enhance aromatics and structure. The remaining batches were fermented with a high proportion of whole berries. These winemaking techniques were used to increase aromatic, structural, and textural complexity. Maturation in small and large oak vessels was utilised to further enhance the distinct qualities of each parcel. All parcels were predominantly aged in 228-litre French oak barriques for 12 to 15 months, of which 32% were new.

The 2018 Homage displays the purity, sophistication and refinement that are the hallmarks of the marque. A captivating perfume – fresh raspberries/blackberries, sweet spices, black liquorice, crushed minerals, cedar – leads to an exquisite, intricately detailed palate with superb definition and depth of flavour. Ultra-fine tannins and vibrant acidity provide a refined texture and an exceptionally long finish. A wine of beauty, poise and finesse that will blossom and reveal more complexity with time. Drink from 2022 to 2037. Decant before serving.
