Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels The Gimblett 2013

40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot from Gimblett Gravels sites in the wider Hawkes Bay area: Gimblett Estate, Gimblett Stones and Tin Shed.

Hand picked fruit was gently destemmed and transferred to closed-top tanks for fermentation. All were harvested and vinified separately. Pumping over with controlled aeration took place during the fermentation period. A post-fermentation maceration of the wine in contact with the skins occurred for up to 3 weeks in some batches to soften the tannins. After clarification, it was transferred into small 30% new French oak for 16 months.

Winemaker's Comments 

Beautiful aromatics include ripe blackberry, fresh blackcurrant and dried herbs. The Cabernets give structure and fresh aromatics, Merlot imparts richness and mid-palate weight, with Petit Verdot assisting complexity, density and colour. Structurally complex, powerful and food-friendly.
