Trinity Hill Lost Garden Pinot Noir 2019
- Textured, savoury
- Hawke's Bay
Springtime and pinot noir go together like strawberries and cream, and this wine brings both of those things to your glass. The Lost Garden pinot is light and lifted on the nose, while juicy cherries and plums hit the palate, which is medium-bodied with a sprinkling of tannin. A vibrant expression of Hawke’s Bay pinot noir, we recommend making yourself a charcuterie and cheese board and taking this one to your next Sunday picnic.
“Youthfully fruited and attractively complex at the same time, the wine shows dark cherry, floral, thyme and toasted almond characters on the nose with a hint of gamey nuance. It's juicy and beautifully rounded on the palate with elegant weight and fine texture, well structured by fine grainy tannins, finishing firm and lingering. At its best: now to 2023. $30.00.”
Full price $30.00 from the producer.

Like all good stories, the Trinity Hill tale began over a bottle of wine back in 1987. Not just any wine, a bottle of award winning Hawke’s Bay chardy that inspired three winos to put the region on the world wine map. So John Hancock and Robert and Robyn Wilson left London and headed to New Zealand to pursue their dreams in Gimblett Gravels, a sub-region of Hawke’s Bay renowned for its stony soils. Now, nearly thirty years on, these regional pioneers have become internationally recognised for their chardonnay, shiraz and cabernet blends. The more recently planted viognier and tempranillo are also worth keeping an eye on, if their award tally is anything to go by.
Hawke's Bay is New Zealand's oldest wine region, with climate similar to Bordeaux and Sancerre in France. It's no surprise then that their best wines happen to be Cabernet blends and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as Syrah. Unfortunately, most of this gets slurped up within NZ, and we have to bang down doors to get some over to Australia. Lucky for you mofos, we're pretty good at this.
