K&L Notes

One of the truly great Syrahs of the world. I would happily run this up against the very best of the Northern Rhone, or anywhere else on the planet, come to think of it. 2013 has been almost universally declared as the best vintage of all time in Hawke's Bay, NZ. The Homage Syrah is built to last but also very gratifying even as a young wine; this can be drunk anytime over the next 20+ years. A true collectable worthy of a place in anyone's cellar.

    After tasting through several recent vintages of the Trinity Hill "Homage," a Syrah from Hawkes Bay, it was obvious that the 2013 displays the most complexity and depth, which speaks volumes to the ageability of the wine. Unlike the '14 and '15, which expressed condensed fruit and spice notes, the '13 opens up in an evolving potpourri of dried herbs, rose petal and black pepper. The palate of "Homage" is totally bone-dry and full, and the wine is made from the best fruit of the Trinity Hill estate for each vintage.

    This is a powerful and rich wine that is sure to age for decades. Dark plum, blackberries, cocoa, and rich vanilla are just some of the many characteristics found in this exception wine. Grippy tannin, spicy wood and fresh acid elevate and add layers of complexity that seem to evolve with every sip. The finish is long and lengthy and offers hints of cracked pepper and licorice. This would be wonderful with grilled lamb and gamy meats.
