Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Syrah is a rich, full-bodied wine with a complex bouquet of dark fruit, pepper, and spice. This wine is made with grapes grown on the steep, stony slopes of the Gimblett Gravels in Hawkes Bay, a region famous for producing exceptional Syrah. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, which adds layers of complexity and a subtle smokiness to the palate. On the tongue, the wine is rich and silky, with notes of blackberry, black cherry, and a hint of vanilla. The finish is long and satisfying, with a savory, spicy quality that lingers on the palate. Overall, Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Syrah is a standout example of New Zealand Syrah, showcasing the region's unique terroir and expert winemaking techniques.
About the Winery
Located in New Zealand, the Trinity Hill winery is an iconic landmark that has been expertly crafting wines for the past two decades. This winery understands the diverse tastes, preferences and budget constraints of the ultimate user. This is the exact reason why it offers three different ranges of wines to suit people’s taste and budget constraints. This winery was formed in 1987, thanks to the efforts of expert winemakers John Hancock, Robert and Robyn Wilson. Within five years, the Trinity Hill winery became one of the most famous wine-making places in New Zealand.
The three ranges of wines produced by this winery are Hawkes Bay Range, Gimblett Gravels Range and Homage. The Hawkes Bay Range of wines is made from grapes grown on the vineyards of Hawkes Bay. The Gimblett Gravels Range of wines belongs to the premium category. It is made from grapes grown in the sprawling estates of Gimblett Estate. The Homage range of wines is the best of the three ranges. These high-quality, international-class wines are made only from Syrah grapes.
The Hawkes Bay vineyards are spread over 1.4 million hectares and it is the second biggest wine-producing region in New Zealand. More than 85% of the Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet grape varieties of New Zealand, is grown on the vineyards of Hawkes Bay. Trinity Hill’s grape harvest mostly comes from the Gimblett Gravels region. The Gimblett Estate, with its innovative gravel soils and micro-climatic conditions, is wonderful for creating full-bodied, aromatic and flavourful grapes. This is the main reason why this area is the prime red-wine producing area of Trinity Hill winery.
Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Syrah and Merlot are the commonly used grapes in the Hawkes Bay range of wines produced here. Chardonnay, Marsanne Viognier, Syrah and Tempranillo grapes are used for the Gimblett Gravels range of wines. The Homage range of wines contains extremely rare types of wines.
