Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, Chardonnay
Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, Sauvignon Blanc has gentle flavours and aromas of lime, citrus and lemongrass complement the distinct aroma of stone fruit. A mineral element lends texture to the wine and the fresh acidity is balanced by a touch of retained sweetness.
The Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, Sauvignon Blanc grapes are sourced from vineyards located throughout the Hawkes Bay area, from the sub regions of Raukawa, Porangahau, Mangatahi and Bridge Pa. The soils are free draining with low fertility and the vines benefit from prevailing hot, dry westerly winds.
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, 47 of which are in the Gimblett Gravels and knows the Hawkes Bay and Gimblett Gravels exceptionally well. The wines reflect this, as they characterise the best of what Hawkes Bay can produce. They have an elegance, balance, drinkability and precision of flavour that makes them a joy to sell.
