Trinity Hill 2014 Vintage Hawke’s Bay Releases

There is a confident and assuredly settled feel about Trinity Hill as they release the 2014 vintage Hawke’s Bay range. No doubt the investment by American wine business owner Charles Banks has provided an extra dimension of financial strength at the base of the company. The administration and structural aspects with CEO Michael Henley are well-catered for, and the production team led by Warren Gibson grows in experience, with the input of founder John Hancock, who also has a special ambassadorial role. Contributing to the strong state of affairs is the ensuing work with the wines from the excellent 2014 vintage. They follow on from the superb 2013 wines, and both John and Warren consider the 2014s to be up with the 2013s in quality, coming from a growing season that saw higher temperatures, cooled by some rain at ideal times. They see the wines a little more accessible in structure, with the fruit expression exceptional. The ‘Hawke’s Bay’ white label range is Trinity Hill’s representation of the district as a whole, as the wines are made from fruit sourced not only from the Gimblett Gravels, but from around the region. Interestingly, the wines do not carry ‘Hawke’s Bay’ on them, but rather ‘New Zealand’ as a designation of origin, (with the exception of ‘The Trinity’) no doubt for export marketing purposes. I have labelled them ‘Hawke’s Bay’. Here, I review a broad selection of the 2014 releases.
