Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 2013

Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay, North Island, New ZealandFrom the dry riverbed soils of Hawke's Bay's Gimblett Gravels, this savoury chardonnay was wild yeast fermented in French puncheons before MLF and a month barrel aging on the lees. Potent smoked flint and creamy lees throughout this linear, fuller bodied wine, with salt roasted cashews, wild herbs and pear framed by well-integrated toasted wood and supported by a lemon curd base. Flaked sea salt and meadow grasses linger on the lengthy finish. Powerful and age-worthy.Tasted: 08 June 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 34.00 MB 35.00 Producer: Trinity HillDistributors: Latitude Cellars Inc.
