The weather in Hawke's Bay has recently been filled with crisp, cloud-free days, the perfect winter pruning weather.

Truly great Chardonnay is exhilarating. When all the elements – ripe fruit, savory oak, refreshing acidity – are in balance, working together in harmony, the result is a sublime combination of richness and power coupled with sophistication and refinement. This is our vision when making Chardonnay, and what we feel we have captured in our Single Vineyard 125 Gimblett 2020.... and it's not just us...

Happy International Rosé Day!!
You may be wondering why we've used this image - well it's because both our Hawke's Bay Rosé 2021 and our Single Vineyard Molly's Block Rosé 2021 are made from 100% Syrah grapes!
The grapes are rapidly and gently pressed with only the “free-run” juice used to produce elegant wines, low in phenolics (or tannins). Deliciously fruity and crisp, both are best served chilled, so why not rug up by the fire and enjoy a winter Rosé!
Head to trinityhill.com to make a purchase or to book a Rosé tasting at our Cellar Door.

The timing for this year's Chardonnay Day couldn't be more perfect... On the back of our International Chardonnay Trophy at the @internationalwinechallenge for our Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 2020, its big brother, the 125 Gimblett Chardonnay 2020, has also just won a Gold Medal award at the #internationalwineandspiritschallenge!
Our Chief Winemaker Warren Gibson says, “The 125 Gimblett Road vineyard site has a history of making Chardonnay from the early 1980’s being one of the original sites planted on what is now known as the Gimblett Gravels. A replanting over the last 15 years is now paying serious dividends. The site consistently provides perfectly ripe fruit that is gently transformed into delicious, complex and powerful wines that we aim to sit alongside the great Chardonnays of the world.”
The last of our 2022 harvest wine has now gone to barrel, where it will rest and soak up some oaky goodness before it goes to bottle. Our winemakers are never far away during this process, constantly checking and tasting to ensure optimum flavour development.
