Trinity Hill is celebrating after winning three gold medals, a Champion Red Blend and Champion Syrah at this year’s New World Wine Awards.
The golds went to Hawke’s Bay Merlot 2020, Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2020 and Hawke’s Bay The Trinity 2020. The Hawke’s Bay The Trinity 2020 was also named Champion Red Blend, and the Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2020 was the Champion Syrah!
It was an outstanding result for Trinity Hill’s winemaking team.
Chief Winemaker Warren Gibson said the combination of a very well-behaved spring, a favourably warm summer plus a sunny, dry autumn meant the 2020 harvest was one of the greatest vintages in history.
“One year in a remarkable string of Hawke’s Bay vintages. The resulting wines include particularly exuberant chardonnay plus both syrah and bordeaux blends with remarkable aromatics, ripeness and texture.”
