Trinity Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Hawkes Bay - New Zealand
Rated 90 - Pale, green-tinged yellow. Sexy, musky aromas of lime leaf, stone and tropical fruits, quinine and flowers. At once fresh and savory, showing terrific acidity and cut to its delicate stone fruit flavors. Reminded me of a gin and tonic with a more tactile palate feel. Three grams of residual sugar here are nicely buffered by firm acidity. This evolved nicely in the glass. - Vinous.

Winery Trinity Hill

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

One of the most commonly planted and cultivated white wine grape varietals in the world is the Sauvignon Blanc. This green skinned grape originated in southern France, where it is still grown today and produced into exceptionally high quality wines. However, it is also very much a varietal of the New World, and can be found almost anywhere with the correct climatic conditions for it to thrive in. Generally, Sauvignon Blanc grapes prefer cooler climates, and benefit best from an early harvest. Too much exposure to heat causes the juices inside the fruit to lose much of their character, and results in flat, uninteresting wines devoid of the grapes' usual bite and crispiness. In many countries, Sauvignon Blanc grape juices are aged in barrels, and are allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation, which transforms this dry and refreshing, zesty and fruity white wine into something far mellower, more buttery and refined.

Region: Hawkes Bay

Hawkes Bay in northern New Zealand has long been recognized as one of the country's most important wine regions, and is generally understood to be the birthplace of the New Zealand wine industry in the mid nineteenth century. Since the first vines were planted in this beautiful part of the country, the wine industry of New Zealand has gone from strength to strength, and is now a major world player on the international wine scene. Many of the country's flagship wines hail from Hawkes Bay, where historic wineries have been producing superb wines made from the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which flourish there for over a hundred and fifty years, and which ripen under the hot sunshine and in the mineral rich soils which typify the region.

Country: New Zealand

When it comes to New World wines, few countries can compete with Europe quite as well as New Zealand, where modern techniques and technologies are allowing wineries to get the very best results from the wide range of imported grape varieties which flourish there. The warm, sunny climate coupled with brisk oceanic winds and remarkably fertile volcanic soils produce grapes of exceptional quality, and New Zealand wines are notable for their ability to carry the terroir they are grown on into the bottle. Whilst the Sauvignon Blanc wines are probably the most widely exported and popular to come out of new Zealand, fantastic results have been produced from the Bordeaux style wines made in the Auckland region, and the Pinot Noir wines of Central Otago. These Pinot Noir wines are far more fleshy than their Burgundy counterparts, and are probably best enjoyed when young, and bursting with the fruit flavors they carry so well.
