Trinity Hill The Gimblett 2009

I like that John Hancock of Trinity Hill puts his John Hancock on his bottles. Irony is delicious. The wine is Trinity Hill by John Hancock The Gimblett from Gimblett Gravels. Phew. Anyway, 2009 was a belter in Hawke’s Bay and you’d have to be unlucky to have crapped out from this year. Trinity Hill are committed Gimblett vignerons so they now a thing or two about eking out the best from their vines. Trinity Hill we’re established in 1987 and make a broad range of vines, but I reckon Chardonnay, Shiraz and this ‘Bordeaux’ blend are the pick of their wines. The blend in 2009 is 38% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec – it varies with the vagaries of each vintage.
