Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List


Trinity Hill The Gimblett is one of our favourite Hawkes Bay Bordeaux variety blends. This label always offers plenty and we consider it to be incredible value. This vintage blend has a higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon than previous vintages and followers of the label will not be disappointed as it has all the depth and richness we expect.


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"“The Gimblett” is traditionally made from a blend of grape varieties. The Cabernet family gives structure and fresh aromatics. Merlot gives richness and mid-palate weight with Malbec helping with complexity, density and colour.

The result is a wine with exotically perfumed aromatics that include ripe blackberries and red fruits plus hints of florals and dried herbs. There is superb clarity of flavours on the palate. Structurally the wine is complex, with textural tannins. This structure will allow the development of further complexity over the next 10 years."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The deeply coloured 2017 vintage is a Hawke’s Bay blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64 per cent), Merlot (25 per cent), Cabernet Franc (4 per cent), Malbec (4 per cent) and Petit Verdot (3 per cent). Matured for 16 months in French oak casks (almost all new), it is fragrant and mouthfilling, with concentrated, youthful blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, finely structured, savoury and complex. Likely to be long-lived, it should be at its best 2022+."


94/100 JamesSuckling.com, August 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"This has a very fresh and attractive feel with a ripe, rich and fleshy array of dark berries and rich fruit, as well as red plums. The palate has a very succulent, supple and juicy feel with fine tannins and a fresh, bright and lithe feel to the finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec and merlot."


92/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2017 Vintage)
"Trinity Hill's 2017 The Gimblett is composed of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 4% each Cabernet Franc and Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot, almost all of which aged in new French oak. Inky hued in the glass, it offers up remarkable aromas of acacia blossoms, blueberries, black currants, mocha and cedar. For a wine with this level of concentration, it's remarkably medium-bodied and balanced, with silky tannins framing the dark-fruit flavors. It's one of the best vintages of this wine I can recall tasting, and it should drink well for up to decade."

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
