Gimblett Gravels
The Gimblett Gravels is a sub-district of Hawke's Bay on the North Island of New Zealand. The region covers 2,000 acres that are differentiated by having intensely gravelly soils laid down by the neighboring Ngaruroro River. This small area has proven to be the single most important region in New Zealand for producing world class red Bordeaux varietals. (Wine/Appellations)
