Hawkes Bay New Zealand
Decibel Cellears 2009 Sav Blanc winemaker started in the music industry.
100% sustainable vineyards. All wine exported out of NZ by 2012 will have to be sustainable vineyards and winemaking practices! That’s pretty cool.
Grassy classic NZ savvy. But the flavors belie – it’s much calmer than a normal NZ sav blanc. Nicely rounded, a touch of gooseberry, very nice acidity not overdone. Nice river rock, chalk in there. 100% stainless fermented but lees are stirred and it gives a nice roundness to the pallate.
1000 cases, $16 a bottle. Total winner! I’d buy it! Lovely lemony fruit flavors in here.
