Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
The first time I ever bought Trinders was off the back of a Ralph Kyte-Powell review. Would have been the late 1990s, by memory. Remarkable how you can (usually) remember the review(er) that that landed the wine in your cellar. This is a good, fresh, well-balanced red without being anything spectacular. It’s one of those wines that will end up ageing well on the back of its just-right sense of proportion. It tastes of mulberry, bay leaves, blackcurrant and cloves. It’s straight-forward, medium-weight, carries a firm-ish swagger of tannin and a tickle of acid. Fresh fruit makes it good to drink now but it will be better again once it’s mellowed out some.
