92 POINTS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
The Trinity is a full-bodied red blend that has been vinted from merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. It's an excellent entry-level release from this iconic producer and is a great drink now option with the Trinity Hill seal of quality. It's soft and ripe with great tannin structure and flavours in the plum and dark fruit spectrum. Superb buying for quality Hawke's Bay red.
Sam Kim writes "This is beautifully composed and expressed, showing blackcurrant, mixed berry compote, violet and cedar characters with a hint of tobacco complexity. It's succulent, plump and flavoursome on the palate, delivering excellent weight and silky mouthfeel, leading to a lengthy flavoursome finish. A blend of merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon."
The winery writes "A Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Cabernet Sauvignon blend, aromas of plums and violets, lingering cassis and blackberry flavours and soft, rich, ripe tannins make this an eminently drinkable wine. Enjoy while young with a wide range of different flavoured foods, or cellar for three to five years for greater rewards."
