Trinity Hill '125' Chardonnay

Trinity Hill '125' Chardonnay

  • Chardonnay
  • New Zealand, 750ml

Fragrant aromas of white peaches, ripe grapefruit, and citrus blossom hints of roasted nuts, flint, sweet spices, and marzipan. The wine is rich and concentrated in the mouth yet remains focused and composed with outstanding persistence and length of flavour. Pure stone fruit/citrus flavours, cedary/toasty oak, gently drying phenolics and a fine thread of acidity combine on the palate leading to a savoury, mouth-watering finish. A superb Chardonnay of exquisite balance, poise and tension.

Hand harvested fruit from our “Tin Shed” vineyard was gently pressed and the juice fermented with indigenous yeasts in a combination of new 228- and 500-litre French oak barriques and puncheons. Malolactic fermentation was encouraged to soften the acidity and impart further richness. The wine spent 14 months on yeast lees building further texture and complexity.

Trinity Hill is an iconic New Zealand winery, celebrating over 25 years of world-class winemaking in the famed Gimblett Gravels District of Hawke’s Bay.

"In 1993, having recognised the outstanding potential of the Hawke’s Bay’s Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district, Trinity Hill became one of the region’s early pioneers, planting grapevines on a barren plot which continues to produce exceptional wines today.

True to our roots, we pride ourselves on crafting especially food friendly wines made from the classic varieties Hawke’s Bay has become internationally recognised for, these being Syrah, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with several varieties that Hawke’s Bay is lesser known for, such Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. 

We also produce wines from varieties which are rarely, if at all, planted in New Zealand, such as Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Francesa.  Our wines are made using traditional techniques, sometimes even including foot stomping, or pigeage.

Chief Winemaker Warren Gibson has led the Trinity Hill winemaking and vineyard teams since 1997 and is recognised as one of Hawke’s Bay’s, most experienced and successful winemakers.  The vintages he has produced since arriving at Trinity Hill have earned him the accolades of New Zealand Winemaker of the Year (Winestate Magazine, 2005), and Winemaker of the Year (Mercedes Benz Hawke’s Bay Wine Show, 2006).

Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels wines are all crafted from vineyards within the small, sub-region. Deposited by a wandering river, these unique, stony soils create wines of character and personality.

Trinity Hill has 3 vineyards in this unique grape growing sub-region of Hawke’s Bay, and our icon wine, Homage, is recognised worldwide as one of the benchmark Syrahs produced."
