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.

Additional Information on Trinity Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Winery Trinity Hill

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Originating in the Bordeaux region of France, the Sauvignon Blanc grape varietal is today found in many different countries around the world. It is a grape which prefers milder temperatures, as too much exposure to heat dulls the juices within the green skinned fruits, leading to wines which are flat and characterless. As such, it is often found in valley regions, or by the coast where it can benefit from cooling oceanic winds before their characteristic early harvest. Indeed, climate appears to be the main variable in regards to the eventual flavor of Sauvignon Blanc wines, and wineries are constantly experimenting with harvesting dates in order to bring out everything from meadow flavors and grassy notes, to citrus and tropical fruit flavors in the bottle. In general, though, Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes tend to produce wines which are dry, zesty and crisp in their nature, and extremely refreshing when served chilled.

Region: Hawkes Bay

The beautiful and airy northern New Zealand region of Hawkes Bay has been an important spiritual home for the country's wine industry for over a hundred and fifty years now. Indeed, Hawkes Bay is widely regarded as the oldest of New Zealand's wine regions, which, in a relatively young country such as New Zealand, makes it something quite special and has allowed the region to develop its own style and identity. Hawkes Bay today produces a wide range of wines, made from many different grape varietals. However, it is the Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines of the region which have gained the most recognition and praise over recent decades, alongside the fact that the region's dessert wines are now considered amongst the finest in the New World.

Country: New Zealand

New Zealand has consistently impressed over the past few decades, with many proclaiming this southern country as being the 'pearl' of the New World wine locations. One of the key attributes of New Zealand wines is their wonderful fruit-forward flavors, which make them a favorite with newcomers to wine, as they manage to be deliciously drinkable without posing many challenges. That isn't to say there is little complexity or interesting features to their wines, as one can easily discover through the fantastic range of wines available – from smoky and mineral rich Sauvignon Blancs, to juicy and plummy Pinot Noirs and the beautiful Bordeaux style wines sourced from the excellent Auckland region. New Zealand wineries clearly have a dedication to quality alongside quantity, and such zeal and expertise is quickly helping them become established as world leaders in regards to both domestic sales and exported wines.
