Overview

Multi-layered and complex with powerful, but ripe and round tannins, great structure. A wine that is distinctly Northern Rhone-like. The colour is a deep, vibrant crimson. Blackberry, black pepper, savory and spice elements are prominent with meaty overtones. The Viognier has added a lifted aromatic quality and softened the tannins, making the wine more supple and appealing. Multi-layered complexity is the aim.

Expert Reviews

"With impressive dark colour in the glass, Trinity Hill’s Gimblett Gravels Syrah has a bright dark-berry nose, plenty of pepper and dark fruits, some black cherry, cassis and sweet dark spices. The palate’s smooth and juicy, with fine tannins, bright spice, smooth flesh and a long plum and berry finish. All very approachable now. "

"A star. The colour is inky; the palate notably bold, rich and flowing, with beautifully ripe cassis. plum and black pepper flavours. Svveet-fruited, concentrated and harmonious, it should mature gracefully for many years."

5 Star - Winestate, Michael Cooper (01/DEC/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is a deep, vibrant crimson.

Aroma

Blackberry, black pepper, savoury and spice elements are prominent with meaty overtones.

Palate

The Viognier has added a lifted aromatic quality and softened the tannins, making the wine more supple and appealing.  Multi-layered complexity is the aim. Powerful but ripe and round tannins give the wine great structure.

Oak aging plays a minor part and the wine lives on its fruit. Combined with the good acidity, these characteristics mean excellent aging potential. Development of mineral, earthy and tarry characters are likely during bottle aging, resulting in a wine that is in Northern Rhone-like rather than resembling anything Australian.

Cellaring Potential

We would expect this wine to age 5-7 years plus with good cellaring conditions.

Food Matching

Great with any red meat and especially good with game, particularly venison.
