Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 Homage opens as a beautifully aromatic wine with interwoven berry purity and oak sophistication. A floral, scented nose initially dominates with brambly, blackberry and licorice aromatics sitting in the background. The extra dimension of florality and seamlessness comes from increased vine age and the presence of whole-bunch fermentation. 2015 has produced a wine that is very powerful and fragrant. The wine shows great concentration and weight with a very crucial elegance. The structure is tight and tense which will allow the wine to age gracefully for many years (10+). Enjoy this wine with lamb or game."
99/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Another compelling rendition of the variety from Trinity Hill, the impressively complex bouquet shows dark plum, spiced cherry, black olive, violet and game characters with beautifully infused cedary oak nuances. The palate is powerful and concentrated, while remaining perfectly proportioned and structured, and delivers exceptional fruit purity combined with seductive spicy/savoury undertones, brilliantly structured by fine, chalky tannins. The wine is gratifying and engaging at the same time, and destined to evolve magnificently. At its best: 2020 to 2030."
98/100 Bob Campbell MW, September 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Tasted with a vertical of five vintages of Homage. Rich and intense syrah with violet, black pepper, dark berry, plum and oak flavours. Dense, sweet fruit nicely balances a solid backbone of ripe, round tannins. A youthful, intense and potentially complex red that promises to age well. 600 cases made. Drink 2017 to 2025."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"One of the country's most distinguished – and expensive – reds. Harvested by hand, mostly from 19-year-old vines in the Gimblett Gravels, the 2015 vintage is a 'serious', age-worthy red, with a sense of latent power and potential. Deeply coloured, it is floral and mouthfilling, with strong blackcurrant, plum, spice and nut flavours that build across the palate to a firm, lasting finish. Open 2020+."
5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, October 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"100% Gimblett Gravels fruit has been used to craft an incredibly floral wine that absolutely erupts with violets, red rose, lavender, dark berry and a whiff of toasted, roasted oak. The mouthfeel is elegant, ethereal even, with finely-tuned acidity, fruit saturation and finished with deliciously dusty, sweet smoke notes. It’s a joy to drink."
5 Stars & 19.5+/20 Raymond Chan, September 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Full, dark, deep ruby-red colour with purple-black hues, near impenetrable. The nose has incredibly intense and penetrating aromas of ripe blackberry fruit with subtle dark raspberry and blue fruit notes, lifted by an array of red, violet and black florals, melded with fine spice elements and a suggestion of black pepper. The aromatic components are seamlessly interwoven and harmonious in presentation. Medium-full bodied, the palate is richly sweet and succulent with ripe, vibrant and lively fruit flavours of blackberries entwined with dark-red and blue fruit notes, along with dark-red, violet and black florals, melded with notes of liquorice, spice and black pepper forming a complex amalgam. The fruit is fine and beautifully concentrated with intensity and depth, the lusciousness balanced by considerable extraction, the tannins very fine-grained and flowery in texture. The acidity is ripe, and softly integrated, and the wine carries with great linearity and drive to a long and sustained finish of black fruits, florals and spices. This Syrah has a remarkably intense and perfumed nose with a beautiful array of floral aromatics, on a rich, succulently sweet black, red and blue fruited palate with considerable, but refined extraction. Match with slow-cooked game meat and Middle Eastern fare over the next 10 years. Hand-picked fruit from sites in the Gimblett Gravels at a crop level of approx. 35 hL//ha, the different lots fermented with an approx. average of 25% whole bunches (some batches up to 100% whole bunch) to 13.1% alc., the wine spending on average 25 days on skins, and aged 15 months in approx. 60% new French oak, predominantly in barriques as well as large format 5000 L oak ovals."
