Trinity Hill – Gimblett Gravels

The majority of Trinity Hill’s grape harvest comes from the unique gravel soils and micro-climate of the GIMBLETT GRAVELS region, in the lee of Roy’s Hill. The soils are deep river gravels, left by the Ngaruroro River as it changed course over many thousands of years. These free-draining gravels can be more than 100 metres deep. Their low fertility, along with the ability to control vine vigour by controlling soil moisture, give small crops with highly concentrated flavours and aromas.
