Expert Reviews

The 2006 Trinity White Label (52% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc and 5% Syrah) has touches of black coffee and gravel on the nose, broody, dense black plumy fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, fine tannins, nice grip with a hint of dark chocolate towards the finish. Backward and tannic, this will need 3-4 years bottle ageing.

A strong and diverse portfolio of wines from one of Hawkes Bay’s most prominent producers.

91/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parkers Wine Advocate September 2009

"Easy drinking Gimblett Gravels blend of Merlot (52%), Cabernet Sauvignon (26%), Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Ruby-hued, with blackcurrant, herb and spice flavours in a pleasant, fruit-driven style." 3 Stars - Michael Cooper, Warren Gibson & Nick Picone Winestate (01/Oct/09)

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietal

52% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc and 5% Syrah.

Aroma

The leather and plum aromas of Merlot, the aromatic spice and red currant character of Cabernet Franc, the cassis aroma and the backbone from Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of blackpepper from the Syrah, have combined to produce a complex, fruit dominant wine.

Palate

The sensitive oak aging has added a further dimension to the wine without being obvious. Richness and soft, ripe tannins make this wine a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.

Cellaring Potential

This wine is made to be enjoyed while still quite young, so we recommend short term (3-5 years) cellaring only.

Food Matching

It can be enjoyed with a wide range of different flavoured food. Pasta and pizza are a great match with this wine.
