The 2011 The Holy Trinity is brick red in colour.
The elegant nose displays vibrant aromas of red cherry, raspberry and fragrant violet floral notes.
Indicative of the vintage the palate shows a suppleness and fragrance with an underlying silky structure of deep cherry, blackberry and plum fruits all perfectly integrated with secondary layers of licorice, forest floor and spice.
The long persistent, fleshy fruit profile is perfectly balanced with an attractive savoury finish.
This release is a blend of 56% Grenache, 33% Shiraz and 11% Mourvedre.
This elegant wine has the balance to develop more complexity with careful cellaring for the next 8 - 12 years and is well suited to chicken teriyaki, duck breast and wild mushroom risotto.
The Holy Trinity is modelled on the wines of the southern Rhone in France, where traditionally they blend varieties such as Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. The fruit for this wine is 100% Barossan, handpicked from old, dry-grown vines which range from 50 to 120 years old.
