2008 Gimblett Gravels Syrah, Trinity Hill
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Pair with lamb shank, roast shoulder of pork, pan
fried duck breast and with any full flavoured
The colour is a deep, vibrant crimson. Blackberry,
black pepper, savoury and spice elements are
prominent. 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 good
acidity, mineral, earthy and tarry characters result
in a wine that is distinctly Northern Rhone-like
rather than resembling any thing Australian.
