Pre-release Homage

Trinity Hill Homage Syrah 2016, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $120

Rich Christmas cake aroma with dried fruits, plum, spice and sappy characters on the palate. An intense and powerful syrah that clearly needs plenty of bottle age before it eases into second gear. Slightly closed and hard to read at this stage. A pre-release sample that will be reviewed again when it is on the market. (Cork)
