Marsanne Viognier Trinity Hill 2018

£20.00

We visited Trinity Hill during our 2014 tours to New Zealand, and met winemaker Warren Gibson, who has been with Trinity Hill since 1997.  A pioneer of the famed Gimblett Gravels – free draining soils too interfertile to support economic sheep raising, that were rescued in the 1980s from a cement factory by some determined wine growers.

A delicious blend of 53% Marsanne, 47% Viognier displays that displays the lovely fruit of these Rhone varietals we drink all too rarely.  Elderflower, dusty peach and apricot aromas and flavours and a creamy texture with hints of toast and bread dough.  We tasted it at our March 2021 Teddington and Richmond Wine Society tasting of New Zealand wines, and agreed it was a super foody wine.

Its creaminess but nice acidity would make it a lovely wine for a Sunday roast chicken, or a risotto.  Morbier is the cheese of choice.

Also available in half bottle.
