Gimblett Gravels Wine

www.gimblettgravels.com Established in January 2001, Gimblett Gravels is a brand owned by an association of New Zealand wineries and winegrowers in the Hawkes Bay region of the eastern North Island. Gimblett Gravels combines the French concept of terroir with modern day thinking to define, protect and market wine. In what is believed to be a first for winegrowers in the New World - wine growing countries outside Europe - Gimblett Gravels is basing the ultimate designation of their district according to a tightly specified soil type. The very special gravely soils and unique climatic conditions - together with the expertise of our winemakers - are key elements to producing high quality wines in the Gimblett Gravels district. The district, which includes the internationally acclaimed Gimblett Road, has been building a reputation for producing high quality red wines from 'Bordeaux' red varieties and Syrah. The Gimblett Gravels appellation, covering 800ha, is strictly determined by the gravely Read more »

  • Trinity Hill Chardonnay Hawkes Bay 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This opens with a big creme brulée nose that is noticeably oaky, with notes of vanillin, wood spice, dried ginger and creamy pineapple. On entry this is rather refined and elegant with a sense of delicacy. Though young, this offers good clarity of flavor with wood spice, barely ripe pineapple, apple and a touch of nectarine fruit. The oak is fai... Read More

  • Trinity Hill Syrah Hawkes Bay Homage 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of Viognier on the nose (5% Viognier in the blend). Very perfumed with just a touch of game and blueberry. Tight with a little white pepper and muscular wild berry fruit. Firm and dry, and almost austere, but packed with dry extract. Deep and savory, a bit inky but with juniper, game and huckleberry. Tight and focused on the finish, this is... Read More

  • Craggy Range Syrah le Sol 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Intensely aromatic and floral, with plenty of wood spice, green anise seed and black fruit. Violets, earth and cured meat are rich and ripe with fine depth. This has savory, fresh blackberry fruit, spicy, sappy herb notes on the back end, palate-staining tenacity of fruit, with fine length, fine balance, and ripe tannins. This finishes with upri...

  • Trinity Hill Red Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay Gimblett Gravels 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Enjoyed this tremendously! A core of dense, dark blackberry, blueberry and black current with layers of oak expressed as a mix of dark chocolate, coconut cream, a hint of vanilla and cigar box; fine, silky tannins. Medium-full body with a lingering smokey/peppery finish. This is a superb example of right-bank Bordeaux. I will definitely be on t... Read More
