FIVE STARS 97/ 100 | Bob Campbell MW "A very impressive wine."
CHAMPION SINGLE VINEYARD WINE | Hawkes Bay Wine Awards
It’s rare to see 100% Cabernet Sauvignons in New Zealand, particularly of this high quality. The wine is rich and concentrated in the mouth yet retains the elegance, structure and restraint so characteristic of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Pure black fruit flavours, savoury oak, fine-grained tannins and succulent acidity combine to produce an exquisitely balanced, seamless, textural palate with an exceptionally long finish. An astonishing wine of power and poise that will reward cellaring for up to 15 years.
Bob Campbell MW writes "A brand new label and the third Trinity Hill wine to crack through the NZD $100 barrier. Named after a correction facility that was planned to be built on the Gimblett Gravels vineyard site that produced this wine. Deep, dense and elegant red with cassis, blackcurrant, liquorice, cocoa powder and mocha flavours. A very impressive wine that's supported by fine, powdery tannins. I'd love to re-taste this wine after a decade in bottle".
