Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2022
Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of lime, citrus and tropical fruits, with a distinct, intense, stone fruit character. These carry through to the palate where a touch of minerality gives a Sancerre-like textural character in the wine. The fresh acidity is balanced by a tiny amount of retained sweetness.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were sourced from vineyards located throughout the Hawkes Bay area, from the sub regions of Porangahau and Mangatahi. The soils are free draining with low fertility and the vines benefit from prevailing hot, dry westerly winds. The carefully selected sites produced beautiful aromatic characters and acidity for the Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc. Optimal vineyard management and attention to detail allowed the grapes to be harvested at a time when the flavour profiles were at their maximum potential.
Founded in 1993, by winemaker John Hancock together with Robert and Robyn Wilson, owners of The Bleeding Heart and The Don in London, Trinity Hill has become a byword for quality and consistency. In 2021, Trinity Hill was bought by a group of New Zealand private investors who are passionate about the wine industry, including Director, Mitch Plaw and his business partners, Craig Turner, Mark Sandelin and Michael Nock. Winemaker Warren Gibson has been with Trinity Hill since 1997. He is also in charge of the 80 hectares of vineyard owned by Trinity Hill and knows Hawkes Bay and the Gimblett Gravels exceptionally well. The wines reflect this. Warren and his team make wines that show the best of what Hawkes Bay and the Gimblett Gravels can produce.
