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 Tempranillo Gimblett Gravels 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Trinity Hill is one of the few Tempranillo wine makers in Hawkes Bay and they do it very well. This is a fruit forward wine with smooth tannins and a medium long finish. And like many Hawkes Bay wines, you get a very lush mouth with the higher alcohol content of their Aussie and CA counterparts. Definitely worth a try if you can find it! Read More

  • Te Awa Red Blend Gimblett Gravels Boundary 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Medium garnet-colored Bordeaux blend, strong earthiness on nose, but with mild elusive fruit aromas and slight fragrance of wood and spice. Moderate balance aspects, with slight tartness, agreeable bitterness. Medium body, good mouthfeel, but heavily lacking in fruit flavor; very short finish. Read More
