Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 2020

    Description

    Trinity Hill's 2020 Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay has been awarded three trophies and New Zealand's first International Chardonnay Trophy at the International Wine Challenge 2022!

    International Chardonnay Trophy New Zealand White Trophy  Hawke's Bay Chardonnay Trophy Gold Medal & 97 points

    Winemaking & Viticulture:

    Weather conditions leading up to the 2020 harvest were typical of a classic Hawke’s Bay summer – long hot sunny days with moderate-cool nights. As Autumn arrived the season became cooler yet remained dry, providing ideal ripening conditions while preserving natural acidity. Hand-harvested fruit was gently pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in 500-litre French oak puncheons, of which 60% were new. Malolactic fermentation was encouraged to soften the acidity and impart further richness. The wine spent 12 months in barrel before being blended to tank for a further seven months maturation on its yeast lees to build further texture and complexity. The wine was filtered and bottled in October 2021 with no fining.

    Flavour profile:

    Fragrant aromas of white nectarines, citrus blossom and lime zest are complemented by hints of toasted nuts, flint, and savoury spices. The wine is rich in the mouth yet remains fresh and vibrant thanks to a fine acid backbone. These qualities, combined with tangy stone fruit/citrus flavours, integrated spicy/toasty oak and a gently drying texture, results in a delicious palate with a salivating, lingering finish. A superb wine of balance, finesse and concentration that are the hallmarks of Trinity Hill Chardonnay.

    Drink from 2022 to 2030
