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.
A beautiful colour; deep and vibrant crimson. Wild raspberry, blueberry, cracked pepper and hints of vanilla bean on the nose. Powerful and balanced ripe tannins give the wine great savoury structure. The wine leads with a pure fruit expression with oak playing a supporting role.
