Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Marsanne/ Viognier 2020, Hawke’s Bay

Blended White from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 02-May-2023
Bright, even, medium yellow with a tinge of green. The nose is gently full, with lush aromas of melon, stonefruit, ripe pear, white pepper, honeysuckle and subtle flint. Full-bodied, aromas of melon, apricot, ripe pear intertwined with honeysuckle, flint and white pepper. The wine is mouth-filling with lush fruit, oiliness and a fine textural grip. Brilliant acidity enlivens the abundance of fruit and floral details, linger to a long, fresh closing. This Marsanne Viognier blend is lush and mouth-filling with excellent texture and acidity. Match with hazelnut-crusted grouper or roasted guinea fowl over the next 5+ years. A blend of 92% Marsanne, 8% Viognier, handpicked, whole bunch pressed to tank, settled, then pressed to older 228-litre French oak barriques for fermentation, MLF was discouraged. Aged on yeast lees for 17 months, no fining. 14% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2023 RRP $39.99
