Trinity Hill The Trinity Hawke’s Bay Red Blend 2018 $22.90

Here’s a shiny new lipsmacking blend of 32% merlot 30% cabernet franc, 28% cabernet sauvignon, 6% petit verdot and 4% malbec from the team at Trinity Hill, and it’s a darn attractive thing to drink.  Great value red here, bursting with classic plum and raspberry characters, sweet fruit intensity, easy, plush tannins and fresh, youthful acidity.  Lightly-styled and dangerously sippable.
