Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Tempranillo 2016

100% Tempranillo from the Gimblett Gravels sub-region of Hawkes Bay. Tempranillo is a red grape variety grown in many parts of Spain, best known in the making of Rioja.

Hand-harvested grapes were destemmed but not crushed. Once fermentation had begun the cap was either gently punched down or pumped over daily during the ferment. After fermentation the wine was aged for 35 days with the skins. Then drained and pressed to a mixture of American and French oak barriques for 14 months.

Winemaker's Comments

Attractive brambly, blackberry-like ripe fruits along with spicy and exotic complexity. The palate is rich and textural with salivating soft tannins. Liquorice, chocolate and sarsaparilla flavours linger on the finish.
