The latest from a range of single vineyard wines from Trinity Hill, Hawke’s Bay. A lively nose – aromas of ripe pear, grapefruit, roast chestnut, sweet lemon and orange blossom. Taut, burgeoning, with power, presence and a vitality to the palate. Unfolding with layers of flavours – ripe stonefruit, citrus, subtle spice, stony minerality and lemon rind. Immense length and drive coming from a line of succulent acidity. That there is an oak influence here is obvious – primary, but not unlikeable – rich and toasted – and, importantly, starting to recede into the shadows. An enveloping texture swaddles those myriad elements and wraps them up in beautiful harmony, allowing you to appreciate the depth of it. The finish is long and memorable. 97pts.
