The Gimblett Gravels sub-region in Hawkes Bay is famed for its deep, free draining gravel soils in a unique microclimate. Soils were deposited by the Ngaruroro River as it changed course over many thousands of years. Their low fertility and excellent drainage give small crops of grapes with highly concentrated flavours and aromas. This is now a highly sought after sub-region renowned for the quality of its wines and Trinity Hill was one of the first to plant vines here in 1993.
Hand-harvested and fermented with indigenous yeasts in 500 litre oak puncheons (some new) to add complexity and texture to the wine. This critically acclaimed wine has flavours of citrus, white flowers and ripe grapefruit. Medium bodied with elegant oak providing texture and lingering flavours of cashew, roasted almond and gun flint. A wonderful structure with bags of finesse, concentration and acidity.
