Decibel 2018 Viognier, 2017 Malbec and 2018 Giunta Malbec Nouveau


Daniel Brennan came from the United States to Hawke’s Bay to make wine, with the influences of his family involvement in wine, music and his experience of New Zealand wines, those from Martinborough particularly prominent. Settling in Bridge Pa, Daniel has made strong connections with many winemaker friends and he launched his ‘Decibel’ Hawke’s Bay wines in 2009 and his Martinborough bottlings in 2010. The wines are eclectic, especially in presentation, and this has enhanced a following for his releases. Here, I review the Decibel 2018 Viognier from Bridge Pa and 2017 Malbec from the Gimblett Gravels, plus a 2018 Malbec Nouveau under the name of ‘Giunta’ which is the family name of Daniel’s Sicilian grandparents. www.decibelwines.com
