Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels The Gimblett 2021 $40

The way that winemakers Warren Gibson and Damien Fischer have evolved this blend over the last decade or so has been super-exciting to see, particularly as the proportion of cabernet franc is now sitting at 50%. The remainder of the blend consists of cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot and it’s a very pretty wine indeed. Erupting with dried herbs, blueberry, concentrated pepper and leather layers, then unfurling hints of dark berries, freshly turned earth alongside meaty, muscular tannins, the mouthfeel is warming, woolly, soaked in soy and black olive and finishes with a suede-like consistency.
