Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels The Gimblett 2011
“Impressive”, said Peter Cowley, summing up the panel’s thoughts on this powerful, inky 2011 blend of five Bordeaux-origin red grapes. It has impenetrable colour and a concentrated nose of blackberries, violets, leafy notes, and a certain earthy austerity. Fruit dominates but there’s a well-applied seasoning of coffee-like oak across nose and palate. Blackcurrant pastille flavours flood the mouth and big grippy tannins dominate the finish.
