Speed tasting 2! Decibel New Zealand

Published on :

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.
