The colour is a deep, vibrant crimson.

Wild raspberry, blackberry and black pepper aromas predominate.

Savoury, spicy notes are also prominent along with some meaty overtones.

The Viognier has added a lifted aromatic quality and softened the tannins, making the wine more supple and appealing.

Multi-layered complexity is the aim.

Powerful but balanced, ripe tannins give the wine great structure.

Oak aging plays a minor part and the wine lives on its fruit.

Combined with the good acidity, these characteristics mean excellent aging potential.

Development of mineral, earthy and tarry characters are likely during bottle aging resulting in a wine that is able to be drunk in its youth but will age 5-7 years + with good cellaring conditions.

Producer Information

First set up in the late 1980s, Trinity Hill is the benchmark Hawkes Bay wine producer. John Hancock has been firmly at the winemaking helm from the beginning, along with partners Robyn and Robert Wilson who own the successful 'The Don' and 'Bleeding Heart' restaurants in the City of London.

Focused purely on making the highest quality wines from Hawkes Bay and Gimblett Gravels vineyards, these wines are an excellent choice from New Zealand to grace any restaurant's wine list. Sourced from small vineyard sites situated throughout Hawkes Bay, and including some from Gimblett Gravels in the blends, the Hawkes Bay range from Trinity Hill represents fantastic value-for-money and a great introduction to the Trinity style. The signature across this range is balanced alcohol levels, site expressive minerality and ripe fruit balancing natural acidity.
