93/100 | Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
SILVER MEDAL |NZIWS 2023
This is a finely crafted example of premium Hawke's Bay Chardonnay with textural palate weight and gorgeous layers of tangy stonefruit and citrus flavours. A perfect partner for white meat and seafood dishes. Absolutely delicious.
The winery writes "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."
