Homage comes from the estate's oldest Syrah plantings in Gimblett Gravels (1995 and 1999) and is a blend of ten barrels made from whole cluster fruit. The wine matures for 18 months in 100% new French oak, which seasons rather than weighing the beautifully formed fruit down in any way.

 

The "homage" to which the name of this single varietal refers is a tribute to Gérard Jaboulet, creator of perhaps the world’s most famous Syrah, Hermitage La Chapelle who died in 1997 at just 55 years old. Shortly before his death, Jaboulet gifted Trinity Hill winemaker John Hancock cuttings of both Syrah and Viognier vines from his Hermitage vineyards - these are the very shoots from which Homage is now made.

 

In the aforementioned recently published report on Vinous, Rebecca Gibb MW scores the 2016 Homage a huge 97 points, the joint highest scoring wine of the entire country. Add to this the existing 97 point score from New Zealand expert Bob Campbell (The Real Review), and it is clear that this a completely superb iteration Trinity Hill Homage:

 

"a deeply satisfying, rich yet elegant Syrah, opulently aromatic with abundant layers, from the deep, brooding spices, white pepper, smoky bacon and cloves to the pretty violets and blackberry fruits A fabulous example of what can be done with Syrah on Gimblett Gravels with love, care and attention" -  Rebecca Gibb MW (Vinous)
