Description

Trinity Hill 125 2020 is a blockbuster Chardonnay, in every sense of the meaning... but it comes with equal amounts of sophistication and complexity. It scored an impressive 96 points in our Fine Wine Annual Chardonnay tasting, and it's big in every sense, wonderfully, full-bodied Chardonnay that will age with intent and style, oodles of fruit, layers of complexity and lashings of clearly expensive French oak. It has all the components but is like a juvenile future Olympian Gold Medalist in waiting... needing time to hone and perfect its obvious attributes. I write about its sibling Trinity Hills Gimblett Gravels 2020 Chardonnay as being akin to $150-$200 Premier Cru Les Folatières Puligny Montrachet selling in the $30’s Kiwi. This 125 might rightly be compared to Grand Cru Montrachet selling from $400 to the sky’s the limit. Easily a 10-year age worthy Chardonnay that should not be opened until 2027 at the earliest... it may well age to the 20-year mark in serious storage, as I have personally experienced with Grand Cru white Burgundies. It will be absolutely mesmerising from 2027 on.

Smells

Complex and well-integrated burnt match complexities, grapefruit, sun-ripened Golden Queen peaches, layered with a mineral chalky vein, filled out by warming creamed corn, and straw aromas.

Tastes

Well in need of time for the deeply layered fruit, winemaking complexities and expensive, powerful oak to integrate, but when it does, be prepared to be mesmerised. Grapefruit, lemon peel, and toasty barrel flavours are woven together by threads of minerality, and a struck match nuance. Try to resist and lock away in a cellar and reap the rewards. Outstanding texture and concentration that evolves beautifully in the glass.
