2016 CHARDONNAY, Trinity Hills. Gimblett Gravels, NZ

Bin:  270

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Area:

Gimblett Gravels is the prized heart of the Hawkes Bay region, on the east side of the North Island. Warmer than the the more famous Marlborough region, it’s just possible to ripen red grapes here, as well as produce fine Chardonnay

Grape variety:

Chardonnay, fermented and matured in a combination of 225 and 500 litre French oak barrels, around a third of which were new wood. About half the wine went through malolactic fermentation

Producer:

From the website of UK agent Liberty Wines:
“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.”

Old Bridge rating:

By far the best GG Chardonnay from Trinity Hill to date. This really hits a lovely balance of ripeness and freshness
