Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels The Gimblett 2013

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

Hand picked fruit was gently de-stemmed and transferred to closed-top tanks for fermentation. Each variety and vineyard was 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 a brief period for clarification, it was transferred into small 30% new French oak barrels 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.
