Trinity Hill 125 Gimblett Single Vineyard Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay (2020)

The classy, multi-faceted 2020 vintage (5*) has a powerful presence. Hand-picked from vines planted in 2008 in deep, silty soils overlying gravels in the Tin Shed Vineyard, it was fermented and matured on its yeast lees for a year in all-new French oak puncheons. Bright, light lemon/green, it has a highly fragrant, complex bouquet. Full-bodied, it is notably concentrated, with deep, ripe stonefruit flavours, fresh acidity, and a very harmonious, finely structured finish. Still youthful, with obvious potential for cellaring, it should be at its best 2024+.
