Trinity Hill Homage Syrah 2010

100% Syrah sourced exclusively from Trinity Hill's Gimblett Estate and Gimblett Stones vineyards, situated in the Gimblett Gravels sub-region of Hawkes Bay.

Hand-harvested fruit was sorted, de-stemmed and lightly crushed to leave a large portion of complete berries. Fermentation took place in small stainless steel tanks. The cap was hand-plunged or pumped over twice daily. A short maceration helped integrate the tannins, softening and stabilising. Aged in predominantly new French oak barriques for 15 months with some barrel stirring. Malolactic fermentation began in tank and finished in barrel.

Winemaker's Comments

Homage is only produced in the best years, in very limited quantities. Dense purple in colour, with complex red fruits on the nose. Blackberry and cassis mingle with liquorice, black pepper and spice. Powerful yet elegant and fragrant with great concentration and weight. The tight, tense structure will allow graceful ageing.
