94pointsTrinity Hill 2017 Homage Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

Cellar Selection

While it's hard to get past the heavy bottle in the age of climate change, this producer's latest vintage of its top wine is a skillfully crafted drop. Less overtly spicy than the previous vintage, it opens with bright red fruit, florals, flecks of black olives, warm pavement and peppery spice. Things get more serious on the palate with a lovely powdery texture and taut, fine tannins. Minerals and spices abound amid the crunchy red fruit. Those tannins indicate a long life ahead. Drink now with food–2035. Christina Pickard
