About the 2021 Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay
We are excited to showcase our updated Gimblett Gravels label from the 2021 vintage.
Hand-harvested fruit was gently pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in predominantly 500-litre French oak puncheons, and a small number of 228-litre French oak barriques. 37% of the barrels were new. Malolactic fermentation was encouraged to soften the acidity and impart further richness. The wine spent 11 months in barrel.
About the Wine:
Aromas of white peaches, grapefruit and citrus blossom are complemented by hints of sweet spices, vanilla, and toasted nuts. The wine is concentrated in the mouth yet remains fresh and vibrant thanks to a fine thread of natural acidity. Spicy/toasty oak flavours and gently drying tannins impart savoury complexity and tension on the palate, which finishes crisp, tangy, and dry with lingering citrus and spice flavours. A superb wine of balance, concentration and finesse that are the hallmarks of Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay.
