Trinity Hill Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2017 and Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2016

06-Nov-2017
Trinity Hill is the consummate Hawke’s Bay wine producer with a strong and broad portfolio of wines that represent the range of styles made in the region, as well as wines that are among the pinnacle of the district. The core of Trinity Hill’s production is the ‘white' labelled; Hawke’s Bay tier which is the affordable collection that utilises fruit from throughout Hawke’s Bay. The premium tier is the ‘black labelled’ Gimblett Gravels tier, the wines of which are based solely on Gimblett Gravels fruit from estate plantings. Founder John Hancock and winemakers Warren Gibson and Damian Fischer are fully aware of the market and ensure their wines meet the needs. Currently, rosé wines are very popular, as is the Syrah variety. The Trinity Hill bottlings of these are exemplary. Here, I review the 2017 Hawke’s Bay Rosé, and Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2016. 2017 was a challenging vintage, but 2016 was a favourable one, maybe not quite in the league of 2013, 2014 and 2015. www.trinityhill.com
