The 2010 “Trinity” is a robust but salivating blend of the classic Bordeaux varieties. A complex, fruit dominant wine. The sensitive oak aging has added a further dimension to the wine without being obvious. Richness and soft, ripe tannins make this wine a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.

"Great-value blended red, still very youthful. Dark, with excellent depth of blackcurrant, plum and herb flavours, it is a finely balanced wine, rich and flowing, with a rounded finish. "Rating 4 Stars - Michael Cooper, Winestate (DEC/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot, 3% other.
A strong Cabernet family dominance gives the wine fantastic deep crimson colour.
The wine shows the aromatics of pure blackcurrants and cigar box. Merlot adds ripe plum and red fruit notes.
The palate is strong but juicy. The dark red fruits again dominate on the palate with hints of chocolate and licorice.
This is a wine that will drink beautifully in its youth due to the rich, velvet-like palate. However, there is sufficient strength to reward medium term cellaring (3 to 5 years).
