A joy to drink
Hawkes Bay on the east coast of New Zealand’s north island has a similar maritime climate to Bordeaux, France but with more sunshine. Gimblett Gravels is a small area within the Hawke’s Bay region. The particular soils and climate of the area are credited with the quality of the grapes grown there. The stones, gravels and coarse sands which characterize the area drain freely, preventing the vines from becoming waterlogged and forcing them to grow long, healthy root systems. Also, the superior heat retention of the clays and the high reflectivity of the pebbles help Gimblett Gravels grapes to achieve full ripeness.
Trinity Hill wines show the best of what Gimblett Gravels can produce. The Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay displays aromas of citrus fruit, white flowers, ripe grapefruit and stone fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with flavours of cashew, roasted almond and gun flint, with hints of well-integrated oak. There is a delicacy to this wine but also a richness together with perfect acidity.
Steamed or grilled fish. Grilled chicken. Pasta or risotto with spring vegetables. Sushi and sashimi.
