Trinity Hill The Gimblett 2013

New Zealand / Hawkes Bay

Andy's Tasting Notes

A great vintage in Hawkes Bay.  This Bordeaux style blend exudes charm and finesse yet is satisfyingly rich and complex.  Lots of berried fruits and cassis together with smoked meat, tobacco, spice and cedar.  A perfectly pitched wine from this excellent winery.

40% Cabernet Sauvignon
30% Merlot
29% Cabernet Franc
1% Petit Verdot

Producer notes: vineyards – The Gimblett Gravels winegrowing area is a small sub-region in the
Hawke’s Bay of New Zealand defined by a very unique stony soil type. This wine is made from Estate grown grapes in the Tin Shed and Gimblett Stones vineyards.  “The Gimblett” is traditionally made from a blend of grape varieties. The Cabernet family gives structure and fresh aromatics. Merlot gives richness and mid-palate weight with Petit Verdot helping with complexity, density and colour.

Producer notes: winemaking – 2013 was an exceptional year for red wine in Hawkes Bay. A fantastic warm summer was followed by a mild autumn with very few rain events. Hand-picked fruit was gently de-stemmed for fermentation. Each variety and vineyard parcel was harvested and vinified separately. Pumping over with controlled aeration took place during fermentation to gently extract colour and tannin. A post-fermentation maceration of up to three weeks helped improve the texture and structure of the tannins. After a brief settling period for clarification, the wine was transferred to small French oak barrels of which 30 % were new. After 16 months in barrel, the individual components were assessed and blended. Bottled October 2014.
