Grant Burge is blessed with access to some of the nation's most precious parcels of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. After crushing, the juices are fermented on skins for a week in a combination of static and open fermenters. Most of the juices are macerated on skins for up to a month after primary ferments, to improve structure and extract rich colour, flavour and tannins. Grenache is allowed to peak at a warm 30C, the Shiraz and Mourvedre at 28C. The wines are separately transferred into a mix of seasoned old 500L French oak puncheons and 2500L French oak foudres to mature for eighteen months. Holy Trinity is then treated to a period of bottle maturation before release.
Rich, deep magenta colour. Vibrant fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and blackcurrants, underlying notes of sweet spice, liquorice and delicate florals adding complexity. The palate is silky smooth, with fine tannins and acidity complementing the flavour of sweet dark fruit and spice, giving the wine abundant length and concentration of flavour. Refined, endowed with layers of flavour, Holy Trinity is well suited to rib and roast duck, venison or lamb.
