Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels 'The Gimblett's fruit is sourced from Trinity Hill's own sites in the Gimblett Gravels in the wider Hawkes Bay area: Gimblett Estate, Gimblett Stones and Tin Shed. Here, soils consist of river shingle deposited by the Ngaruroro River. These soils are extremely free draining and of low fertility. Each of the sites produce relatively small crops with intensely flavoured and coloured grapes.
Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels 'The Gimblett' has beautiful aromatics that include ripe blackberry, fresh blackcurrant and dried herbs. The Cabernet family gives structure and fresh aromatics. Merlot gives richness and mid-palate weight with Petit Verdot helping with complexity, density and colour. Structurally, the wine is complex, powerful and food-friendly.
