Grant Burge made the first Holy Trinity blend in 1995. Following a trip to France's Rhone Valley with winemaker Craig Stansborough, he refined the style dramatically over the following vintages. In particular, a move to extended post fermentation maceration created silky, soft tannins, and a shift away from American to older French oak meant an altogether more subtle wine.
This beautiful vintage matches anything else to date under the label and provides smooth, satisfying, supple, spicy, vibrant drinking. The 2017 The Holy Trinity is a richly flavoured and elegantly structured Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre that continues the long and lauded heritage for this traditional blend in the Barossa Valley. The dense mid-palate and long, textural finish combine to create a wine that is rich and elegant, sweet and savoury. It's an excellent example of this distinctive Barossa style!
