The Holy Trinity is modelled on the wines of the southern Rhone in France, where traditionally varieties such as Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre are blended. The fruit for this wine is 100% Barossan, handpicked from old, dry-grown vines which range from 50 to 120 years old. It's a gloriously plush wine with a silky palate that's full of juicy, savoury richness. It's very highly regarded in Barossa wine circles. One sip and you'll know this really is the Holy Trinity.
The winery writes "The medium-full bodied wine is filled with vibrant flavours of fresh red fruits and vanilla, complemented by fine and ripe tannins that run the length of the palate. The dense, mouth-filling mid palate and long, textural finish combine to create a wine that is rich and elegant, sweet and savoury and will sit beautifully on any table now, or cellar gracefully for 8-12 years."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A charming and complex bouquet with aromas of plums and white pepper, raspberry and licorice, anise and toasty barrel scents. Delicious, textured and dry on the palate with a contrasting core of red fruit flavours that mirror the bouquet. Tense and firm with a decent tannin structure and acidity driving the texture, salivating, fruity, youthful and food ready. Lengthy on the finish with a taut and youthful mouthfeel. A food wine this young so decant for service or enjoy from early 2024 through 2029+."
