Estate::

Trinity Hill was established to produce world class wines from the classic grape varieties, using the spiritual homes of these varieties as inspiration.  To this end President John Hancock and winemaker Warren Gibson have between them spent more than 70 vintages throughout the world soaking up inspiration.  All Trinity Hill wines are produced with utmost care and respect for the grapes and with minimum intervention.  Trinity Hill consistently delivers quality wines in all three ranges:  Homage, Gimblett Gravels and Hawkes Bay.  Trinity Hill is noted for excellence in all their wine.

Grape varieties::

Merlot, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Syrah.

Vinification::

Each individual vineyard parcel was harvested separately and then gently de-stemmed prior to fermentation. Subsequently, gentle daily pumping over of the skins during fermentation helped extract a soft, complex structure. Following fermentation, the skin maceration was extended for up to 4 weeks to further integrate and soften the tannins.

ageing::

After 14 months aging in a combination of small French oak and stainless steel tanks, the individual blocks were blended to create the ideal marriage of components.

appearance::

Garnet with purple hues.

nose::

The leather and plum aromas of the Merlot combine with spice and red fruit characters of Tempranillo and Malbec.

taste::

Dusty tannins and great length.
