Gentle flavours and aromas of lime, citrus and lemongrass compliment the distinct aroma of stone-fruit. A mineral element gives presence to a Sancerre-like textural character in the wine. The fresh acidity is balanced by a tiny amount of retained sweetness.

Trinity Hill is referred to as an iconic New Zealand winery because we consistently produce superb examples of traditional and innovative wine varieties. We pride ourselves on crafting wines that are especially food friendly. Our small size allows us to concentrate on making exceptional wines - be they from our premium Gimblett Gravels and Single Vineyard selections or our excellent value Hawkes Bay range.

2014 was a fantastic season in Hawkes Bay. The three carefully selected sites produced beautiful aromatic characters and acidity for the Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc. Optimal vineyard management and attention to detail allowed the grapes to be harvested at a time when the flavour profiles were at their maximum potential. The grapes were harvested over an extended time period which, when combined with the use of the range of vineyard sites maximises the diversity of aroma and flavour.

The fruit was gently pressed to produce an elegant, fruit driven wine with low phenolics. The juice was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to retain fresh fruit characters. Most components received a minimum of 6 months lees contact in tank.

A small component (10%) was fermented and aged in small 228 litre barriques to promote complexity in the blend.
