Winemaker's Notes
"Indicative of the vintage the palate shows incredible concentration and poise with rich deep cherry, blackberry and plum fruits all perfectly integrated with secondary layers of licorice, cinnamon and spice. The long persistent finish is equally impressive and the flavours linger well after the wine has been consumed.The underlying complexity and multitude of fruit flavours prevalent in this wine are certainly indicating that this could well be one of the classic vintages of The Holy Trinity.This elegant wine has the balance to develop more complexity with careful cellaring for the next 10 - 12 years and is well suited to game meats such as roast duck with Chinese greens and venison tagine."

Technical Notes
"The fruit for this wine is 100% Barossa, handpicked from old, dry grown vines at around 14.5 Baume. The 2010 vintage is certainly one of the great quality vintages and Grenache was a real standout. This release is a blendof 38% Grenache, 36% Shiraz and 26% Mourvedre. A combination of seasoned larger format Foudre vats (2500 ltr) along with French oak Puncheons (500 ltr) are used for this wine with a total of 18 months maturation prior to bottling. The larger oak format retains freshness of fruit yet has all the benefits of ageing in oak with a softening of the tannins and maturation of the aromas and flavours."
James Halliday
"94 pts ... Good red-purple hue; the three varieties come together synergistically, red fruits leading the pack, but with dark berry support from the grenache, and fragrance from the mourvedre; the tannins provide structure for further development. Drink through 2020."

Wine Advocate
"91 pts ... Medium deep garnet in color, the 2010 Holy Trinity comes from five different vineyards with fruit from the 1890s vineyard accounting for about 40% of the total. The blend is usually 44% Grenache, 40% Shiraz and 16% Mourvedre and is matured using no new oak. It presents a very pretty nose replete with warm mulberries, kirsch and raspberry preserves with nuances of Indian spice, bacon and olives. Medium to full-bodied, it is very structured by grainy tannins and has very crisp acid to lift the considerable concentration to a long, yet still youthful, finish. Drink it now to 2020+."
