Trinity Hill 2007 Sauvignon

Tonight it’s the MasterChef semi-final and I’m supporting Emily.  She is young, enthusiastic, innovative, intelligent, bright, ambitious, engaging, tenacious, persistent, creative, spunky, adventurous, and quick to learn.  From a business perspective, she is the sort of person you would employ first and then wonder what role she should fill second.

Trinity Hill 2007 - on the precipice of greatness?

I wish more winemakers were as energetic and creative (in so far as that is expressed in their wines).  I think John Hancock maybe such a star.  I have just tried his Trinity Hill 2007 Sauvignon Blanc from Hawkes Bay.

I recently ordered a case of SBs from the Wine Society and my first taste (Cloudy Bay) worried me that 2007 was a poor year in comparison to 2006.  Trinity Hill has assured me that this is not so.

I tried the 2006 twice last year and there is a lot less gooseberry in the 2007.  So far, so good.  Much more evident were peach, elderflower, lemon zest.  Intense, zesty, zingy, gorgeous.  By far the best white wine I have tried this year.  You can get it from the Wine Society for £7.95.

So I am in a good mood and hoping that Emily knocks the socks off her older competitors.  COME ON EMILY!  And John, if you ever want a job in the UK, give me a shout…

    WOOHOO! – she made it to the final. But hang on…. how come there were four people in the semi-final and three in the final??? Most semi-finals result in two casualties. Oh well, I’m still an Emily fan.

    I’m very sorry that Emily didn’t win MasterChef. She is truly talented but at 18 years of age clearly too young. A couple of mistakes, that a few more years of experience, will eliminate was the only thing that settled like a depth charge, between her and the trophy.
    She done great to get the final though and I predict that she will be a Gordon Ramsay of the future, only female, er and not Scottish, and perhaps a few less swear words……
