2020 TRINITY HILL THE GIMBLETT RED HAWKES BAY NEW ZEALAND
Chief Winemaker Warren Gibson has been with Trinity Hill since 1997 and has won the New Zealand Winemaker of the Year title from Winestate Magazine. Since 2005, The Gimblett has been a Bordeaux-styled red wine with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. The 2020 release is no exception. It’s a beautiful red wine blend that captures the nuances of the growing season and reflects the region’s terroir.
The Real Review Wine Classification, “Very deep, bold and bright purple-colour and the aromas are wonderfully clear and pure, speaking loudly of cabernet sauvignon subtly backed with classy oak. The palate is supremely elegant and beautifully proportioned, with concentration but also elegance and style. A wine of real panache and great potential for cellaring. (50% cabernet franc, 33% cabernet sauvignon, 17% merlot).” ~ from THE REAL REVIEW 97 POINTS! of Australia and New Zealand (wine guide)
