The WinePod met Warren Gibson recently for a podcast chat with a view to understanding how his wines at Trinity Hill are among the most awarded in the world.
Trinity Hill is a modern winery situated on the North Island of New Zealand in Hawkes Bay. In their own words they have a …
.. ‘philosophy of “Quality rather than Quantity” … controlled yields ensure the intensity of flavour and elegant styles for which Trinity Hill is renowned. The majority of Trinity Hill’s grape harvest comes from the unique gravel soils and micro-climate of the Gimblett Gravels region … the soils are deep river gravels, left by the Ngaruroro River as it changed course over many thousands of years. Their low fertility, along with the ability to control vine vigour by controlling soil moisture, give small crops with highly concentrated flavours and aromas. This is New Zealand’s premier red wine area’.
This is a fascinating podcast. We learn all about the brilliance of the Gimblett Gravels and even have time to taste Warren’s (and one of the world’s Icon wines) ‘Homage‘. Fabulous!
Trinity Hill is distributed in Ireland by Liberty Wines.
