Producer: Trinity Hill
Since its inception in 1993, partners John Hancock, who has been making wine...
in New Zealand for over 35 years, and Robert and Robyn Wilson, owners of The Bleeding Heart and The Don in London, have made Trinity Hill a byword for quality and consistency. Winemaker Warren Gibson has been with Trinity Hill since 1997. He is also in charge of the 80 hectares of vineyard owned by Trinity Hill, of which 47 are in the Gimblett Gravels. The Gimblett Gravels, planted on the former bed of the Ngaruroro River, is now a highly sought after sub-region renowned for the quality of its wines. The Trinity Hill wines have an elegance, balance, drinkability and precision of flavour. This estate was one of the first to plant grapes on the Gimblett Gravels in 1993.
This wine has perfumed aromas of leather and plums derived from the Merlot, with hints of spice and red fruit characters from the Cabernets. The palate is rich and supple, with ripe tannins and an elegant finish.
