2016 Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels Marsanne Viognier

Gorgeous Rhone blend from the Gimblett Gravels!

Description

Not a blend you see very commonly in New Zealand, this takes the best of the Southern and Northern Rhone Valleys in France and gives them a gravelly Gimblett shakeup. Almost an exactly 50/50 blend, the wine spends a full 12 months in barrel prior to bottling, though the oak is mostly seasoned so the flavour is not dominant. A wine that's easy to love, it has individuality and character and is made in a refreshing, dry style with lots of stonefruit and nutty characters.

Smells

Lifted aromas of orange blossom, apple, apricot, nuts and white peach.

Tastes

Dry and refreshing, the mid-palate has a richness and poise to it, the fresh stonefruit and apple flavours coming through on a soft, rounded finish, with hints of biscuit and vanilla. A gorgeous wine that has character and freshness to it, but will reward mid-term cellaring through 2021.
