Trinity Hill 2014 Gimblett Gravels Selection

The Trinity Hill ‘Gimblett Gravels’ wines, popularly known as the ‘Black Label’ bottlings are the premium offerings for the company. They are the best expressions of Trinity Hill’s chosen varieties in the unique Gimblett Gravels district. They have evolved over time to represent great value, as the wines consistently figure among the best of Hawke’s Bay, and are priced to be extremely accessible. I see them as veritable bargains and go-to wines when wanting a Hawke’s Bay classic.

The 2013 Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels wines were great successes that were the produce of one of the best-ever Hawke’s Bay vintages (click here to see my reviews). However John Hancock and Warren Gibson consider 2014 to be an equally superb year. In fact, 2014 recorded higher temperatures than 2013, this moderated by beneficial rain, relieving vine stress. The 2014 wines do not seem to be as fully-structured and will not be as long-lived as the 2013s, but offer more and immediate drinkability, which are also very positive traits. Here, I review the 2014 Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels releases.
