Marsanne Viognier Gimblett Gravels Trinity Hill 2019
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.
