Description

In 2016 Virginia and I were sitting at a local Wine Negotiant in the legendary white, Burgundy Village of Puligny Montrachet snacking on delicious plate of charcuterie and enjoying a superb Premier Cru Les Folatières Puligny Montrachet that we paid circa NZ$150 a bottle for... that’s off the shelf retail. Fast forward one week later and I’m back at FWD Lunn Ave in the tasting room and we’re evaluating the latest release of Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay (TH GG) and it was a truly light bulb moment... the quality and style beautifully replicated at 20% of the Les Folatières price. What tops a normal TH GG Chardonnay for style and price... only an extraordinary vintage of the same wine. It does so purely via the next level quality fruit of 2020. It’s quite simply ‘Beauty in a Bottle’. The baby brother to Trinity Hill 125, but boy does it pack a punch in terms of quality vs price. Scoring a whopping 95+ in our Fine Wine Annual Chardonnay Tasting like that expensive (considerably more expensive now) Premier Cru Les Folatières we had back in Puligny Montrachet in 2016. Yet the price of this TH GG 2020 release is only a couple of $$ dearer 6-years on. When you taste the excellence of this... you understand why their elite TH 125 GG Chardonnay is next level magic again and surely the equivalent of a Grand Cru white, Burgundy experience. I recommend you pay forward your wine budget and buy a case of this spectacular 2020... under screwcap you could be drinking a bottle every year for the next 12-years, and it would still have time on its side.

Smells

Complex aromas yet elegant, beguiling and poised, layers of citrus peel, grapefruit, toasty oak, warm, mealy biscuit notes, and subtle burnt match.

Tastes

Finesse in a glass, streamlined, balanced with exceptional length and texture. Grapefruit flavours prevail with white stonefruit, cashews, nutty, biscuity charm, tinged on the finish with fresh lemon zest. Stunning, drinking well now through 2030 or even longer if properly stored. Serve with pasta dishes or your favourite white meats.
