- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY
Brilliant and vibrant ruby red colour. A playful combination of candied apple, raspberry jubes, frangipane and lemon curd. In the background you see notes of cinnamon and clove. Medium to full bodied, fresh and vibrant with enough tannin to shape the wine. Acidity carries the wine through to a clean, slightly mineral and lengthy finish. Lovely hints of fresh raspberries and cinnamon linger on the palate.
95 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion
"A 47.9/36.5/15.6% GSM blend separately vinified, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, 6-8 days on skins, matured for 16 months in used French puncheons and hogsheads. Holy trinity or holy vintage? I'll take both, for they have both made the wine so enjoyable, a tumble of red and purple fruits in a skein of silk."
Barossa Wine Show 2019
The Holy Trinity is a traditional blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. The fruit for this wine is Barossa grown, predominantly handpicked from old, dry-grown vines which range from 35 to 90 years old.
‘We think this is probably the best The Holy Trinity we have made. Some years the stars align and 2018 was one of those years’, Craig Stansborough, Chief Winemaker.
Even ripening periods allowed the grapes on the Barossa Valley floor to reach optimal ripeness during what was a very steady harvest in 2018. Heat and dryness toward the end of the harvest created excellent conditions for the late-ripening Grenache and Mourvèdre.
A portion of the wine was fermented in traditional old concrete fermenters with the cap held down by header boards – similar to the Southern Rhone technique – allowing heavy extraction of colour and tannin, particularly from the Grenache. Post fermentation the wine was matured in a combination of seasoned French Oak Foudres and two to six year-old French puncheons.
