Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris

Cracka Review

The Gris revolution is one of the most exciting things to happen in Kiwi wine. It means they will offer more than just Sauvignon Blanc and this exciting wine from Hawkes Bay has a little splash of Viognier in the mix to offer more textural charm and complexity. We love the vibrancy of fruit offered here with pear and spice looming large on the nose. It’s got ripe fruit flavours and is completely balanced but the real draw card here is the texture that ensures it matches well with food, particularly Asian dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Flavours and aromas of Nashi pear and spice are evident. The opulent mouth-feel makes this wine a great drink. It would fit well with Asian style food.

This is a great wine to drink on its own or it would fit well with Asian style food. Serve lightly chilled.

Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
Showing some deeper-golden colour and added complexity on the nose, this has a slight buttery edge and some creamy pears and tropical fruits. The palate's smooth, with plenty of flavour, not too much sweetness and a composed, slightly mealy, marzipan-flecked finish. Drink up.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Still unfolding, this is a full-bodied blend of pinot gris (86%) and viognier (14%). Dryish, and vibrantly fruity, with very good depth of ripe peach, pear and slight spice flavours and a well-rounded finish.
