Jancisrobinson.com 18/20 "Complex nose of smoky bacon, black pepper. Rich but not fat, lots of ripe berry fruit. Like a rich northern rhne, and really smooth. Very pretty and very perfumed". Heady, perfumed, deeply impressive. French barriques (35% new)
Parker 90 "violets and black pepper add hints of stone fruit and blueberries on the nose... creamy-silky texture that's wrapped up by a long, juicy finish edged with mocha..."
A silky classic from the stars of Gimblett Gravels, co-fermented with a dab of Viognier for scented elegance.
From one of the most respected wineries in Hawkes Bay comes 'The Trinity', a blend of Merlot, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Syrah. Rich aromas of plum and cherry combine with notes of leather and spice.
This wine has perfumed aromas of violets and fresh blackcurrants, along with hints of liquorice and spicy, toasty oak. The palate is supple and juicy with soft, ripe tannins and an elegant finish.
Deep coloured, the wine exhibits dark ripe fruit characters as well as truffle, spice and subtle toasted oak on the palate. A fulsome, structured and well rounded Pinot Noir with a soft acidity and generous mouthfeel
