Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels 'The Gimblett' 2019

The Gimblett is a blend of grape varieties picked from Trinity Hill's vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels region of Hawkes Bay. Since 2005, “The Gimblett” has typically been a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec, in varying proportions, depending on the strengths of the vintage. Thanks to a warm growing season this vintage is made almost entirely from the Cabernet family - Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Cabernet Franc (43%) and Tempranillo (3%). Each variety and vineyard was harvested and vinified separately and then matured in 100% new 225 litre French oak barrels for 15 months, before being blended together and then returned to the same barrels for a further six months maturation. After a total of 21 months in barrel, the wine was re-assembled, filtered and bottled. Deep purple in colour, this wine boasts aromas of blackberries along with savoury hints of bramble, fresh cedar, liquorice, vanilla and toast. Pure blackcurrant flavours, savoury oak, fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity combine effortlessly to produce a concentrated, textural palate that powers to a long and satisfying finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
