Tasting Notes Details

Trinity Hill

The Gimblett
Bordeaux blend - 2014

With a whopping 49 percent Cabernet Franc, my favourite red grape at the moment, the omens were good. And it delivers plenty of aromatic lift: florals, blue and blackberry fruit, spice?Youthful and undeveloped at this stage with distinct oak flavours. This is a medium bodied red blend with moderate concentration of pure fruit. The tannins are drier and rather more aggressive than anticipated but time will likely do it a few favours.
